Did you try MSI Afterburner? I found it to have least effect on frames per second:

Also, make sure you're recording at 30 fps. Recording higher is useless: wherever you upload the video, it will convert to 30 fps format.

Lastly, what is your 1 TB HDD model?

Well, that basically concludes why you cannot record smoothly: the hard drive is very slow. 7200 RPM drives are suggested at the very least.

Still, I'd give MSI afterburner a shot.

oke, well i think im am going to replace that harddrive then, because i want to record gameplay, and with such a computer it would be a waste to let a slow harddrive get in the way
