Ok, so I will potentially be buying an SSD. Currently I record Youtube videos but my frame rate drops when I begin to record and I think this is because I am both running the game and recording on the same hard drive am I correct? So id I get an SSD will the FPS be able to stay the same as I will be running the game on one hard drive and recording on the SSD?

Just a second hard drive might work just fine depending on your settings, and won't leave as big a hole in your wallet.

Yeah, you can get some good capacities at 7200RPM that won't break the bank. 1 or 2 TB will hold a lot of video, even in a raw storage format.

It isnt very dear and the write speed goes up to 450 mb/s

That's just 60GB of space. It will fill up quickly. For the same price you can get a 1TB Seagate or WD.

It can write at 450MB/s, which is 3.6 Gbps. This is only if you're feeding it that much. I know many youtubers that record 1080p and the HDD that runs a third of the SSD's speed can keep up just fine.

But most of these HDD I look at are only 5400RPM and the 7200RPM ones are really expensive!

Also I don't really care about the size of the SSD and I am willing to spend the money if I need to.

The two brands I mentioned have 1TB 7200 RPM models available for the same discounted cost of the SSD you're looking at, approx. $60 USD / £36 GBP.
