I've been recording some gameplay on my PC. I've done it before on my old monitor which was 1024X768, but now that, I've upgraded to a 1980X1080P monitor, I have a lag spike every minute or so. As soon, as I record, I encounter lag spikes after a twenty seconds and it keeps on happening every minute after that.
When the lag spikes occurs, my frames drop to around 20FPS and this only happens when I'm recording with Fraps. I haven't tried other recording software yet. Just to add, it last for a few seconds but, it's really annoying.
Personally, I think it's because of the increase in Data my HDD has to handle, as I'm now playing at a much higher resolution. Also, I play on the same HDD that I record on, if I get another HDD and put it in a RAID 0 array, do you think it will make things better?
Please, I need an answer quick and any help would be greatly appreciated.
