AMD Six-Core FX-6120 Processor
10GB PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM
6MB L2/up to 8MB L3 cache memory
1TB Serial ATA hard drive (7200 rpm)
Barracuda 7200 rpm 2 TB extra internal harddrive with fraps videos recording to it.
And a EVGA 660 2 GB graphics card
I've done research and I've dropped the settings on fraps and games and I still get the same problem.
I was wondering if there is anything I can do to fix it.
Im new to this so any help will be very appreciated
You can choose what FPS you want to record at. By default FRAPS will record at 30 FPS, it'll lock. You can change to 50 or 60 FPS. The more FPS you choose, the harder performance hit you will get, but the video will be smoother, when you're done recording.
Nevermind , they both drop my fps. Dxtory not so bad but after I record the video is more laggy. I guess my computer cant handle it. Even when I drop my ingame settings and start recording the fps drops.
From CNET: The bottleneck of No. 1 of the speed of capture is a write-in speed to HDD. If it is the environment of two or more HDD, this function will accelerate writing speed.
I dont think an external hd would help if conected by USB 2 as it would be limitted to speed of USB 2. USB 3 or ESATA conection may be ok. Having a second hd in the pc would provide the best write speed.
