    For gaming? FRAPS. For normal desktop? Camtasia.

    I can't use FRAPS for what I got it for.

    I wanted to capture videos of my races in NFSU, but I can't record because it slows down the system too much and I can't drive.

    Maybe I need another Raptor in RAID...just one isn't fast enough...

    FRAPS is a fair hit on the system, so most people recommend dropping your resolution back down to 800 x 600 or 640 x 480, so it's doing less work, and rendering less video.

    I tried that and its still slow.

    I'm pretty sure its a HD bottleneck (a single Raptor evidentally isn't enough).

    Yes it takes a large hit in performance, how I wish we had comps that could not only capture but also compress the video during the play. So that one could have Divx files of the session right there when finished gaming. Now that would have some impact on ya fps..

    When will we be there in computing power..? 10 years..??

    Just output via S-video to a card with S-video input and record... :) works for me.

    Unfortunately the card that im using is the one with the input.

    The input/output is used by the same port. I'm not sure if you could somehow use that for going both ways at the same time...

    I think you'd come back to the same problem, which would be the processing power / HDD writing required to both play the game well and record the video (and compress if need be).
