Hello.
I have been using fraps to record my gameplay @ 1920 x 1080 60fps and my problem is that it cuts my framerate in half. I have looked at other software but it all seems quite shit.
So I ask, is there a way to use another GPU or TV card dedicated to the recording while my main card does the processing?

Thanks

I have found with FRAPS that recording to the same hard drive you're playing from will cause massive slowdown. (ex. C drive to C drive). Recording to another hard drive seems to help considerably.

if you go into fraps and loke at the video settings their should be an option to set what FPS it records at
