recording gameplays

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
hello everyone,
I'd like to start my own youtube channel and do some commentaries there. So I need to record the gameplays (using dxtory or fraps). I tried it out but it lagged, because my PC is bottlenecked by the green series (western digital) hard drive that I use as my primary HDD (OS + programms and games). I can only record in 360p and people would'nt watch it. I also need an SSD for it's reliability and speed.

This is my current PC :
i7 2600k 4.6ghz
16gb RAM 1600mhz
GTX 680 OC
Zalman Z11 Case (5 fans)
GS800 800W power supply
Green WD 1tb 7200rpm HDD
Asrock z77 pro3

(monitor, mouse, keyboard are not important now)

The samsung 830 128gb (80€) is very good for it's price so I'd buy that SSD. Then I would put my OS and my heavy programms and games on my ssd too. Then I would buy a 250gb HDD (65€), a WD velociraptor (the fastest HDD on the market) which has 10k rpm. So I'd play my games from the SSD and record everything and put it temporarely on the velociraptor HDD. After I finished recording, I'd put the recorded videos on the green drive.
My question is: If i do everything like I said, could I record in 1080p 29.97fps(youtube fps)?

OK, stop stop stop.

Don't get an SSD for fraps, a good 1tb WD Black is more than enough. How do I know you might ask? I recorded 25 man raids on WoW and did guides for my guild, had a C300 for my system drive and a WD black for storage, works a treat.

Don't bother with a raptor, they don't really have a place in the market anymore tbh.

the ssd would just be for the os and the games (I could also use a hdd, but I like te speed of it... Fraps files would go on the black or velociraptor... Why not a velociraptor?

They cost too much for what they are and you can record HD 1080p video onto a black without any issue whatsoever.

You'll end up with more disk space as well.

how many mb/s are needed for 1080p recording?
post #6 of 16
If you did 50MB/s you'll be fine, it's more likely going to be your CPU that limits you.

Remember fraps records uncompressed data you will want a large enough hard drive so you don't have to delete recordings every 30 minutes I would recommend a good 1TB HDD.
