I am wanting to know if my computer can handle these on med/high settings while recording. I'd like to start at around 60+ fps.
Far Cry 3
Black Ops 2
Assassins Creed 3
DayZ (Arma 2 Mod)
Skyrim with Mods

Maybe start around 24fps instead, that's only a 2 core CPU, with 2 logical cores per physical core. - Comparing to gaming at 72 to 128 fps you'll certainly notice the difference, it will affect your reaction time and more.
