Record as in with Fraps. Building a computer soon.

I won't be recording games such as Battlefield 4, so I won't need the strongest stuff on the market.

It all depends on your budget, in my opinion.

The budget is ~$1200, but I could add more. I already have OS, monitor, etc.

The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time is a mediocre game.

With $1200 you can get something really strong that will be able to handle even BF4

Raw 1080 video (what you would be capturing with Fraps) is incredibly space consuming. You're looking at 5 to 7 gigs for every minute you record. You would not only need a capture card to cover performance issues which you WILL be having if you try to record without one, but depending on how much you want to record in a single session, you'll need a large hard drive dedicated to recording alone.

This is a good PC for what you're trying to do. The extra i7 cores will make recording and encoding your videos much easier

Is 1080 really that space consuming? I capture 720p from my 360/PS3 and it uses about 3GB for 35-40 minute videos.

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.

Raw video is. Raw being completely uncompressed. If you're capturing video that small then whatever you're capturing with is encoding it as it saves. Fraps however only captures raw video. This is done to save on performance that's otherwise eaten away by encoding on the spot to save space.

If it is uncompressed then yeah. Using other tools like MSIAfterburner instead of Fraps is more recommended since you can compress the video size and keep the file size reasonable

Here is what a similar PC to the one I posted is able to do while recording Far Cry 3 with Fraps(A really graphically intensive game)
