Keep lagging while recording games with fraps?!

While recording with fraps on multiple games (Dishonored - Skyrim) I keep getting lag. I can record without lag when I use half size but I would preferably like to use full size for higher quality. I checked of the FPS box in fraps and selected 120 Fps while recording but I always lag and get HUGE file sizes. Please help!

    Fraps takes a big hit on performance. Try using NVIDA's recording software via the GEFORCE EXPERIENCE software that came with your driver. Shadowplay. It is better and takes up less processing power
