Thank you Apoc. Words straight from my mouth. My favorite saying when it comes to people reading articles and not understanding: " When you know not what you speak of your mouth is best used for chewin"

another way of saying that (by Lord Byron) is "It is better than to remain silent and be assumed stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt".:lol:

ok so how many mbs does fraps tie up? if I have a gid of ram...there is no way in hell that fraps is going to hog my recourses....just to give me my frame per second.....maybe if I was benchmarking during the game or capturing video. And If I was to play for hours on end for a section I wouldnt want to use fraps because its just a tool to compare before and after....for example...before and after driver installs....or overclocking cpu or gpu......its just a tool.

so let me get this traight. You haven't used fraps while playing yet ? Lol are you in for a shocker. Why else would you use fraps but to capture. The game has it's own built in fps screen command. When taking video Fraps Kills your resources, and that is what it is for taking Video.

i have a gig of ram as well but i don't use fraps to catch video unless it is a really GREAT moment in time. Go try it and see how it turns out.

Let me put it this way, I have tested it.

BF1942, 1Gb DDR, FX5700, Athlon64 3200+, Without FRAPS recording, constant 60+ FPS, with FRAPS recording 10-15 FPS.

Also keep in mind that FRAPS is storing the vid data UNCOMPRESSED to save CPU cycles, so allow a Gigabyte or so for 10-15 minutes of recording. Sure it won't suck up huge amount of rescources just to give you your FPS, but it won't be a true evaluation if you are comparing your computer to others who aren't using FRAPS, there is still some overhead.
