What kind of specs are needed to record in 1080p with fraps?

#1TheRobberPosted 9/5/2013 11:55:11 PM
I have a build planned, but it's a bit too expensive for me.
Gigabyte GTX 770
i7 4770K
Fractal Design R4 Titanium Gray
Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) CL10 1600Mhz VENGEANCE LP RED
2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm SATA 6Gbit/s (And another 250GB HDD I have)
Corsair CX 600M 80+ Bronze Modular
MSI Z87-G45 GAMING ATX
DVD±RW Samsung 24X DL Black, Bulk

Any recommendations on what I could downgrade without too much of a performance loss?

less ram and a 4670 maybe

depends on the game

I'd say i7 3570k or better, assuming you're recording modern software alongside it, and aiming for playable framerates.
Alternatively, use better software. DXTory will maybe hit performance by ~5% on average. You'd have more trouble with HDD bandwidth at 1080p.

This. You'll have to record to a separate drive than the OS and game are running on.

not really, you should always record to the fastest drive you have.

what drive you record to also depends on remaining capacity. if possible, record to a drive with minimal data on it and that is also your fastest

Unless your fastest drive with most capacity is too busy doing other things to record at 1080p.

^^^ This.

Fraps is easy to run. Running fraps PLUS something else heavy is the issue.

I tried recording on a 2nd drive with fraps... my performance dropped significantly doing so.
