Looking good so far. One suggestion I have is to replace the 480 with a 570. They're virtually the same price on newegg with a rebate, but the 570 has better performance and uses much less power.

I ask this because when I am not recording with my current rig I get around 90 - 140 fps but right as I hit "RECORD" I get capped 60/90 Max FPS due to the write/read hard drive limits.
(I am not sure if it is the hard drive causing the fps cap but a friend of mine updated his Sata II hard drive for a Sata III one.)
I'm actually not sure if SATA III will help with the 64mb cache, but I know that mechanical hard drives don't attain speeds that SATA II offers, let alone SATA III. My advice would be to record to the SSD and then copy to a hard drive.

Price seems convenient enough:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133401
(If I buy a re-certified card I will also be getting an extended warranty since the manufactures only covers these cards for 90 days)

However does it live up to the specs/horse power of the 480 when compared side by side?

I have actually tried recording to my SSD while playing on my Sata II and I get the same fps cap.

Then again I have an ASRock G41M-S + EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE at the moment.

What SSD I don't see one?

For recording get 2 F3's one for the OS and your games and one for you recordings. That is the best thing to do. 64mb of cache is pretty much just a gimmick and you won't even use any of it when your recording.

Edit: saw it Don't ever record to a SSD. All it does is ruin the memory chips faster. 2 F3's will help you out a lot.

Luckily I only did it twice and only to be disappointed.


What about having my OS/Games/Priority Applications on the SSD and recording to the F3?
post #8 of 21
Buy another F3 and put them in RAID-0. Or buy 3 more and do RAID-10. Sexy.

Quite honestly, if you got a 2500K and an H80 or H100 and overclocked it to ~5GHz, you wouldn't need a 2600K except to shave off ten seconds on final render time. I deal with 1080p AVCHD files in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and my 2500K doesn't skip a beat. Plus with that card, if you have access to a copy of Premiere Pro, you can save $100 on the processor and go with a 2500K. Your video card will rip through anything using the Mercury Playback Engine.

Plus I think you'll like CS5 over Vegas

Fraps is not CPU intensive. I have a 1055t. Works fine.

I would recommend Dxtory as an alternative. You can record to mulitple un-RAIDed drives and you can record at a lower resolution and frame rate then your playing at, and it won't be effected.

Fraps caps your frame rate at your recording frame rate regardless of whatever. Use Dxtory. Much more better.

Most quad cores can easily handle the task of recording. I would get a pair of 7200 RPM 1TB drives.

Yes it is. Try recording on a Q8400 old tech isn't all that great. Even at 3.2GHz I could barely record something like Crysis or BFBC2. Even Gmod got pretty crappy frames.

The pair of drives will help.

You can do all of this in Fraps except for recording to multiple drives. He should still get better frames with even a single drive. Although a RAID-0 setup would be sexy and super fast.
