I'm doing this thread for a friend, so I'd like to know a decent recording PC for games of prices I list below. And yes, I know that you can get external recording software, so don't count that in the price. :P

~300€ (if possible :P)

~500€

~750€

~1000€

~1500€

~2000€

for recording you need 2 good things, cpu and fast harddrive, ssd or raid configuration.If you are using fraps for recording you can get big fps improvement by just getting ssd to record stuff in to.

Your SSD size would really depend on how much your planning on recording before removing the files. At a glance of a raw fraps clip i have on my PC, 1:49 of recording takes 3.9GB (max quality settings)

Don't record to an SSD. The cost is extortionate and not worth it.

Get hard drives in raid but in reality if you have a decent hard drive with a high write speed, and a decent CPU you will be alright.

My new 1 TB HDD recording drive is absolute bliss.

You could save your fraps files to an SSD HDD, which then throws 'em over on another set of HDDs. 4x1TB would be a good start!

Have him buy an internal capture card, it doesn't require him to build a new computer.
