So for a while I recorded using Fraps, (non legal way) and it was dropping my FPS about 10-15 (20-25 intesnse). Then I stared using OBS it didn't drop but maybe 5 FPS. MY question, is are the PCI(e) recorders better that the software. If anyone can recommend any recording soft/hardware that would be appreciated. I'd not like to spend more that $50 USD. But IDK as much as some people.

If you have an nvidia gpu you can use shadow play, if not the avermedia ones are good without any hit on performance (but cost closer to 100). Other than that all I can think of is dealing with the drops.

Dxtory is excellent! Use Dxtory with the lagarith codec, there are countless tutorials online about this.

Shadowplay is becoming very popular because of its minimal FPS hit, but is only available to GTX 600+ users.

Popular hardware solutions are the Elgato and Avermedia something.

A bit out of my budget. Do you know any closer to $100? If not I can just look around for a bit and get back to you and see if we can find any good ones from there.

What are your hardware specs and what resolution + FPS do you want to record at?

Reviewers don't think too highly of it lol. Make sure to read through the reviews though.

That won't be able to record at 60FPS.

A hard drive that's writing 120MB/sec video will write 10 GB in less than 2 min. That would mean a 10 min commentary is 50gb.

Just because it can write that fast doesn't mean it will. Depending on the quality Livid wants to capture at, he may need all of that speed or he may need half of that speed.

What i'm trying to say is that for 10min that is a huge file comprable to fraps so if he gets a recorder that compresses the file or uses a different recording technique it should be small in comparison
