Hey all, I have been using FRAPS for a while, but I'm getting a little frustrated with it. While recording when playing Team Fortress 2 or Modern Warfare 2, my fps drops and becomes erratic. I've tweaked different settings, like recording at half size, and locking the framerate at 35 or 40, but it still slows me down to the point where I can't play normally. So my question is: What hardware upgrade would increase my in-game fps while recording with FRAPS?
Windows 7 Pro 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz
3 GB RAM (2.5 GB usable)
Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT -> 196.75 drivers
Creative SB X-Fi
