Even beside that point, write speed has absolutely no correlation to framerate in any possible situation, recording or not. An SSD wouldn't solve even a single one of his issues.

    And yes it's possible a SSD will improve his recording.
    10MB/s is really slow, Like really slow the average is about ~50-75mb/s I have 2 HDD in raid which gives me ~250mb/s when I last checked. And yes your RIG can fall behind on write I have a decent guest PC however It can't record due it's very slow HDD so it will LAGG.

    What I think is his HDD is to slow for recording it will mess up the writing speed and it's get laggy, If you have another HDD laying arround put it in your rig and give it a test. You can also test your write speed with programs people recommand for 1080+ I believe over 100mb/s due it's size it has to write.

    Also might want to check this video out:

    EDIT: Seems like fraps was the issue but doesn't mean the above me stated thing wasn't right.

    Made a simple typo, meant 100/s, and it still wouldn't affect anything as long as you have enough RAM. You could literally have a write speed of absolutely zero and not lag at all if you have unused RAM.

    Also, I've done extensive experimenting of my own, and found that Metro 2033( one of the most graphically intensive games of all time), takes up about 45mb per second of lossless capture at 1080p and Max Settings, easily caught by the average hard drive. CS:GO would take far less, making it even easier to successfully capture.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.
