Default Best Game Recorder/Capure software?

I'm looking to do some In-Game recording of games I play, and we're talking a lot of recording..I have an external with plenty of space to record hours of footage for later editing. So I'm wondering what would be the best thing for me to use..and something that won't bog down my computer while playing.

My friend recommended me to a DVD recorder, that I can use to record my games directly to my external HD. Would something like this be the best solution or would software be the way to go?

There are several really good game recorder but they both specialize in recording different games. For example Fraps excels at recording fullscreen games while something like hypercam or camtasia specializes in recording the desktop and non-fullscreen games such as Runescape. Tell me a little bit more about what your recording and I can provide some more insight.

HD PVR is the world’s first High-Definition video recorder for making real-time H.264 compressed recordings at resolutions up to 1080i. HD-PVR records component video (YCrCb) from cable TV and satellite set top boxes, with a built-in IR blaster to automatically change TV channels for scheduled recordings. Audio is recorded using AAC or Dolby Digital.

The recording format is AVCHD, which can be used to burn Blu-ray DVD disks. Two hours of HD recordings, recorded at 5 Mbits/sec, can be burnt onto a standard 4.7 GByte DVD-R or DVD-RW disk for playback on a Blu-ray DVD player.

The HD PVRs amazing recording quality allows personal archival of your favorite high definition TV programs from any component video HD set top box. The HD PVR also has standard definition composite and S-Video inputs so you can record your old home video tapes into an AVCHD format for creating Blu-ray DVD recordings.


Record formats

There are three formats which you can choose when recording a video:

.TS which is a generic 'transport stream' compatible with many digital media players
.M2TS which is compatible with the Sony Playstation3
.MP4 which is compatible with the XBox360
All recording file types can be used to burn AVCHD Blu-ray compatible disk recordings.
The HD PVR files can also be burned onto a standard DVD+R or DVD+RW disk for playback in a Blu-ray disk player using the included Arcsoft TME Disk Create application.

The included TME Media Converter program may also be used to convert the .TS file to other formats compatible for playback on an iPhone and Ipod.

When you use Fraps, use 30-50 FPS mark and Half-Size.

Bull.
I have a 260 and I record 60FPS full-size, with an i7, he will too
No way I would play something like COD with 35 FPS.
