I have a Lenovo Y580 with resolution 1366 x 768.
If I have a 1080p external monitor hooked up via HDMI, will it actually appear as 1080p (in-game) on monitor as I record it with Fraps?

Yes, the resolution is whatever the display supports. However, some cards in laptops can limit your resolution.

If it has a 660M then it can support up to 3840 x 2160

Yes, but if I record the game on the 1080p monitor and record it with Fraps, will the video have 1080p resolution when uploaded to Youtube?
