Edit: Sorry about my first reply I skipped through it fast. So my apologies for that answer. Thanks
I set it to 60FPS and it still fixes the stutter/frame skipping entirely when I'm recording. With FRAPS set to 60FPS 3dmark11 shows it recording the the same FPS that I am getting in the benchmark and its super smooth. Hit that record hotkey to stop recording and its back to a very stuttery mess. Hit the record hotkey again to start a recording and its smooth again. Reinstalling windows didn't fix it either.
I'm so drained and defeated with this problem, I just can't figure it out.....
