trying to record gaming from my pc and I have 2 options. 1 get a capture card (know nothing about) or get a new gpu thats nvidia geforce so I can use shadowplay. I already have fraps but the file sizes from recording are rediculously big. I use a hauppauge to record my console gaming and an hour of recording is under 5gb in size where FRAPs uses that much space for a couple minutes of footage. The image quality of both is basically the same.

I have a AMD Radeon HD 7700 series graphics card right now and run all current games on high - ultra settings. I know nothing about pc parts so what should I got with? new gpu for shadowplay or a capture card? Whats going to give me small file sizes like the hauppauge? Something under $150 please

I'm confused. Are you trying to record PC or console? Since you already have a hauppauge, why are you talking about buying a capture card?

Anyway. Dxtory is a much better program than fraps.

sry if my post was confusing. I have a hauppauge 1212 that came with a dongle to record console footage. I dont have a analog port on my pc so im not able to hook it up for recording whats on the pc without investing in one. I figure if im investing in something than why not invest in a better gpu that will also allow me to record pc footage.

Also how do I know if my motherboard or the rest of the pc can handle a stronger gpu?

What you need to worry about here is if your PSU can handle a 750ti. Although my understanding is that the 750ti doesn't require much power.

I could be entirely wrong though. So you'll need to look into this yourself, or wait for someone else to do it for you.
