  1. I know that there are a couple of threads thatt adress this topic but they don't go into detail so I wanted to open a new thread regarding this topic.

    I have heard several rumers that running FRAPS can lower your FPS in games. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this and if it is true?

    Thanks :)

    Yes it does. To record whats on screen uses a lot of system resources and creates extra hard drive activity.
