    Fraps lags-a-lot

    Fraps is lagging like hell while recording BF3 videos and a 23 seconds video has 662 MBs. Ideas?
    Nope.

    Doubtful
    Lower game resolution.
    Record at lower frames persecond.
    Get a better system.
    Overclock your CPU and GPU.
    I record with no problem in BF3 @ 1920x1080.

    1- My PC should handle both pretty well
    2- Already at minimum
    3- Just bought this one, want to buy another one? No.
    4- Motherboard won't allow

    Newer version of fraps will help?

    Fine
    Not really. Post the specs of your "gamer build", it might help us determine what's the weakest link

    Also unless you have a h67 mobo (which is NOT meant for gamers), you can OC the CPU. GPU ocing shouldn't even depend on the mobo, unless you're using an integrated card. Which you shouldn't be.

    Intel Core i5 2400 3,20 GHz
    AsRock H61iCafe
    MSI GTX560 Ti Twin Frozr II 1GB OC
    4GB of RAM

    I think the rest dosen't matter.
    Computer parts are really expensive here, and the salary per month is small, so I can't afford a better one. Still good.
    EDIT: It dosen't lag all the time, just at points, like when the landscape changes fast.

    Well it ain't that bad, though the H61 is pretty bad news for CPU OCing. I would probs try to get more RAM, you're most likely clogging it up since 4GB isn't a whole lot to work with. I'm assuming your HDD can handle the high read / write speeds just fine?

    Have you taken a look at the software PlayClaw? I have the same problem with Fraps, but PlayClaw is fantastic.
