Why is my system lagging?

My system (I7-920, R9 280 Dual X, 18 GB Ram, 240gb SSD, 1TB HDD, Sufficient other stuff -_-) is lagging super hardcore whenever I try recording with programs such as: Dxtory or Fraps. Is my CPU not strong enough to encode while playing games? Should I upgrade soon or immediately? What do you think is going wrong with my computer :(

    Are you recording to the same storage device that you are playing the game from? If so, try recording the gameplay on a different storage device.
  2. What settings are you running your games at?
