Fraps

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My specs for my computer are down below and up to date. I am using fraps to record gameplay on Team Fortress 2 which is set at max settings, 8x AA, 16x Anistropic Filtering, and resolution 1920 x 1200. My fraps settings are Full size, locked at 29.97 framerate and recording sound is on. Force Lossless RGB off and Record microphone is off as well. I am getting about 25-30 fps, is that normal for my computer? I just thought it would stay steady at 30 fps with the power of my computer. Thank you in advanced.

That's normal, your computer is going to experience slow downs as it writes ALL of that data to the slowest component, the hard drive.

TLDR; Normal

Alright thanks. By the way I have my hardrives set in a raid configuration so in reality I only have 500gb, is that slower than recording to a different drive?

It's going to be slow no matter what because your using a hard drive. The only way to make it any faster would be to get a SSD.

Don't worry about it IMO.
