Does recording framerate depend on graphics card

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Ok, I have decided I am going to be ordering this card:

http://www.ebuyer.com/279585-xfx-hd-...e-hd-687a-zhfc

However, I need a definitive answer. Will a better graphics card increase my framerate while using an on screen recorder to record game play?

At the moment, I have the 4670 which runs everything fine, until I try to record the game, I drop to 5-10 FPS.

Thanks.

GPU, and storage device both play a role. CPU does as well, since often you want to encode on the fly for smaller storage, raw footage at decent fps eats a lot of storage very quickly.

My build is in my sig, but I have an intel i5 750 and a 60GB Corsair SSD, I think only my graphics card slightly lacks.

What's the best way to be able to record in good quality but keep the file size down, so I can upload it to youtube etc?

Buy an external drive like the Spinpoint F3 to record on.

I have a 500GB external HDD already. How would that help? Wouldn't the file I have to upload still be like 5GB?

Try recording to your SSD.
Once again...

Same result, I was recording to there in the first place ^^

I want to know if graphics card makes much of a difference as I only have a 4670 atm.

I am not sure why an external was the first choice for someone. But unless its eSATA or USB 3.0 youd never keep up on USB 2.0.

For fraps I am able to record 1080P @ 30 to 40 FPS on a 5900 RPM 2TB. Anything higher and the hard drive chokes. As for playclaw I dont personally have the CPU to run it on the laptop but if you do it gives you a batter shot HHD wise since you can down the quality. Fraps at 1080P@30 is 2 to 2.5 minutes for every 3.95 GB file.

GPU is mainly frame buffer copy ops the rest is on the cpu for encoding. Not sure why your having issues with that rig. I basically asked the same questions going in recently.

GPU makes a difference, but CPU, HDD, and interface bandwidths are more important.
