Windows 7 64Bit
Intel i5 760 CPU (2.80Ghz, not overclocked)
6950 Radeon GPU
1920x1080 display to a HD TV
Samsung 2TB 5400rpm HDD - The HDD I'm trying to record to (not the HDD with fraps/windows on)
Despite tweaking many different settings, full screen/half screen, FPS, different screen resolutions I always end up with a pathetic fps when I try to record which makes any game unplayable. Fraps isn't the only one I've had trouble with either, I've tried about 3-4 different other kinds of recording software (playclaw, hypercam etc) but it's always the same story, a completely unplayable frame rate. One of the few things I haven't tried yet is setting up RAID between a couple of my HDDs but even that's not guaranteed to work from what I've read.
One of the most frustrating things is that I've tested fraps on my brother's machine which is a couple of years older than mine (so lower spec) and his has no such problems. I haven't tried the most system intensive games on his, but his can still record with fraps at 30fps or so on games my PC can't.
Anyone here use fraps or other such recording software and have an idea what the problem might be? Cheers.
