The reason Fraps takes up so much disk space is because the footage is basically 100% raw footage, almost if not the same quality as you were just experiencing. As you may or may not know, this size dramatically decreases after compression.
I don't really care about features or anything like that, so long as it records video at the press of a hotkey. I don't want to have to wait for my videos to compress before I can use them, lol.

Forgot Afterburner had all that, been running it this whole time. I'll give it a shot.
