Okay, this time I have a question a bit more away to what PC parts I should get. I am wondering what a good video recording device would be, such as FRAPS. And do not ask me to use FRAPS, it does not run good on my PC. I'm looking for one that allows you to record in game video, is free, has no cap on it, meaning the settings and time you can record are limitless (or at least close to that) and something that is easy to use. Thanks.
A video capture card. Any other software out there is essentially fraps. Only difference is that I can link to some freeware that doesn't put the stamp. Expect the same frame rates though.
What is a video capture card? I attempted another Freeware called Fast Cap Pro, it works good (no framerate loss) but it is hard to use and buggy. I encounter errors when attempting to capture video.
Ye i am wondering about this as well. I have fraps but it's rubbish for me.
FRAPS is not a device, it is a piece of software. You can't expect to meet all your criteria for a nice price of nothing. Be prepared to pay if you want something decent.
A capture card is a piece of hardware. It is designed to record video and most capture cards are TV Tuners aswell. They aren't free though. The price you pay for FRAPS is fractional compared to a decent capture card.
So what do these Capture Cards look like? Is there any watermark on the FPS?

I don't think you quite understand what they are...they're certainly not free, for a start. http://images.google.co.uk/images?q=video%20capture%20card&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&sa=N&tab=wi

PCI or AGP? Or even worse PCI-E. Hmm, so these cards will capture ingame video with a video card.

This is a freeware, do you need anything with this, such as a Capture Card?
They are PCI. They do not require the transfer speeds of parallel graphics ports.
You'll need a video card with VIVO (Video in/Video out) ports on it to run a direct connection to your capture card. Otherwise, you'll have to use a specific piece of software.
I'm a bit rusty on this subject so I'll let someone else fill you in more accurately.
