recording gameplays

post #1 of 2
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)?

I have a very similar setup to the one you mentioned. The only notable difference is that I use a 1TB RAID0 Array for recording instead. I am able to record in excess of 30fps at 1080p so my bet is you'll be great from a storage aspect. What games do you plan on recording?
