GTX 680 - Frame Stutter when recording Minecraft

Hello Everyone! I come to you today to ask about a problem I have yet to find the answer to anywhere else! It happens whenever I record Minecraft with FRAPS. Minecraft runs fine on my GTX 680 when I'm not recording it (anywhere from 60-550 FPS). When I record, however, My framerate dips to around 60-120 FPS (Doesn't sound bad). Unfortunately, I get a very noticable stutter which makes for annoying videos of random frame freezes, and makes the game harder to play! If anyone has any idea what's wrong, please help me! Thank You!

Specs:

Intel Core i7 2700K [Sandy Bridge] at 3.50 GHz (stock)
EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 680
16 GB Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 4 1866MHz RAM
ASUS Sabertooth Z77
Corsair H60 CPU Liquid Cooler

Thanks Again! :hello:

expect this its normal - recording is very intensive on everything as it has to render AND capture etc

outside chance because its raw video it could be a hdd speed limitation...

I have, I can record Battlefield 3 at 60+ FPS With No Stutter at 1080p On Normal to High Settings. I guess I could try Dxtory, but the results arent really as visually appealing as FRAPS

So you're saying I may need a faster hard drive? I could do, but I've tried recording to an SSD which didn't seem to fix the problem... Thanks for the help though

To Reiterate, It ONLY happens on Minecraft while recording :/

might be the recording program badly reacting to the game.

It could be, but my friend also records Minecraft with a lesser setup than me and is able to record Minecraft with FRAPS and gets no stutter whatsoever, leading me to believe it's either because he has an AMD card, or because of a problem with my GPU or CPU, or a software configuration gone wrong... Again, not sure. Any ideas?

Ok, I've decided to use Dxtory, thank you for answering, it seems to record fine with no stuttering! :)
