So you can play in 1920x1080 with an uncapped frame rate while recording 1280x720 30fps?

Also you can record external audio inputs like a mic for live recordings and the video file has two audio layers so you can remove/edit your voice to your liking after the recording. Fraps records your voice along with the game audio in one layer, so once you record, your stuck with it.

Also, Dxtory creats a single file for each recording session. Every time you've recorded 3.9 GB of Fraps (1-3mins for me depending on settings) it creates a new file. Dxtory is much more easier to use.

So save $100, get the 2500K + a nice cooler and OC over 4GHz?

I am been going back and forth between the 920 and the 620:

Yes Dxtory is a lot better than Fraps, so if I drop to the 2500 K I could easily purchase this software and put the extra money towards the Antec Kuhler 920 instead of the 620.

Also:

Distribution HDD Writing:
The bottleneck of No. 1 of the speed of capture is a write-in speed to HDD.
If it is the environment of two or more HDD, this function will accelerate writting speed.

Preparation is completed only by specifying two or more holders which save data, and performing speed setting, without using a special file system.

Would I need another hard drive to take full advantage of Dxtory?

I can play in 1080p and record in 1080p without any frame locking. Go try it.

He said nothing of commentating or recording the mic while playing.

There are many other ways to do this as well, and he already uses fraps.

Lots of variables, don't be so narrow.

The thing about the 2500K vs 2600K is that the 2600K needs more voltage because of hyperthreading. I'm not sure what you think is safe when OC'ing, but you won't need more than a 2500K if you're just doing 1080p stuff.

Definitely just get one more drive. I have two WD Green drives in RAID-0 and they get 140MB/s reads and writes. You will EASILY see that with two 7200 RPM drives.

I have, frame rate cap box unchecked and all. Fraps locks the max frame rate to what your recording at. Newest version/oldest version doesn't matter.

It is a just a "+" I was stating.

Lots of irony in that statement. Fraps gives you no variables while Dxtory allows you to record at whatever resolution/fps regardless of what your playing at .

No, I'm not being narrow. I have tried and used Fraps for a very,very long time. It comes up short to Dxtory long list of features. And is in most scenarios, more resource heavy.

I have made a couple of changes to my wishlist based on the information gathered from this thread:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=12066809

If you don't feel like clicking the link:
Instead of dropping an extra $100 on the i7 2600k I will be getting an i7 2500k.
(1) SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3, I will be getting (2) instead.


Note: I decided to purchase Dxtory and it is a lot better than Fraps due to the fact that you can customize almost EVERYTHING in it.

I am able to record with 720p - 1080p quality without any kind of FPS cap. So whatever fps my game runs at, Dxtory is able to records without capping/lowering my Fps.

PS: I am still on my "old" rig and recording to 1 hard drive instead of 2 by enabling rawcap (dxtory is supposed to distribute the files better between two hard drives when enabling this feature)


Thank you all for your input, I am waiting for more!

You need to get rid of that GTX 480. That thing will produce so much heat. A GTX 570 is about the same price and would perform about the same (they take turns performing better) running cooler and using less power.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/309?vs=306

Personally, I wouldn't trust one of those pre-made closed loop water cooling systems. Not much can go wrong with a high-end air cooler. You could get a CHEAP Hyper 212+ vs. the 620, or get the more expensive NH-U12P or NH-D14 (<- MONSTER) vs. the 920. If you wanted some true water cooling, you could get either the XSPC RS240 or RX240 kits. Just some food for thought!
