with your upcoming build you don't need of SSD for recording because i7 3770k ehm, could handle everything on stock speed. But i recommend ssd for your new build get something like 128gb.

An SSD won't have any effect on your recording. However, I would still highly suggest an SSD for any newer build that is being purchased for performance reasons. I have never, ever heard of anyone say they were not impressed or were disappointed by adding a good SSD to their machine. They do make a big, big difference in simply using the machine for everyday stuff.

SSD will help you out but you have to be mindful of which capacity to get if you want to capture high rez clips for long duration. Make sure you have normal HDD to store your vids afterwards as well.

You have to note that recording with FRAPS caps your framerate to match the video recording speed, so, if you're recording with FRAPS at 30 fps, your game will not run above 30 fps.
