Is there something out there better than Fraps thats free or really cheap? Fraps is pissing me off, I dont know why but I can run a game let's say Modern Warfare 2 at 150 frames per second but when i try to record sometimes it lags so much its not even viewable! Even with Counter Strike Source i get over 300 fps but can't get a good recording? Whats the deal?

What i've noticed is at least with the unregistered free version the first five to ten seconds will absolutely kill the fps no matter the game. I think this is the processor or gpu getting used to the sudden use of the app. After that first 7 or so seconds the recording at least for me corrects itself.

Wegame is nice and I have it as well but it doesn't work with certain games like Bad Company 2 and STALKER call of pripyat and the quality doesn't seem to be as good.

Wegame is nice but it definitely lags on some games. the frame rates is limited i believe.

When using fraps, don't record to the same hardrive that the game is running from. So if your game is on an SSD, set your fraps to record to some other HDD. It reduces lag by a lot
