Can you tell me which is the best screen recorder for games (in this case gta:sa-mp)

I've tried out several ones, but they always lag when I play them.
I've played them in VLC (VideoLan) and Winamp, but they both lag.

The one I know I've tried is;

CamStudio
Fraps
Screen Recorder Gold


Please tell me which is the one with high quality, but no lag.

My specs are:

Asus M3N-78
Asus GeForce 8600GT 512mb
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Corsair Powersupply 650W Black, ATX/EPS
2048MB RAM
WinXP Pro SP3

I've always used Fraps and it's never let me down, But I have the full version so it may be better quality then the free trial.

Fraps is by far the best IG screen recoding program out there.

(I'm guessing google? xD)

Fraps in my opinion is the best in-game recorder.

Fraps.

Hypercam(registered) is good too when you want to record your screen not in-game.

Fraps full version worked fully.
But I had to download the newest VLC to get it to work. :P

I use ZDSoft Game Recorder with the Xfire video codecs. Although i have a registered version of Game Recorder, so i don't know if you can use different codecs with the free version.

If Fraps lags you, your computer sucks and you need to upgrade it or clean it. Because you can't get a better recorder.

Don't record with Full size, try half size instead. Almost the same quality and even no lag ingame!

I've already told you that it's working perfectly (no lag)
And with Full Size :D

I prefer Camtasia, as desktop recorder.

Calm down dude, I was just saying it doesn't lag for me, As the others were saying, Fraps lags or something, And was just suggesting a Recorder. Duh.

No, you were actually saying that I could try another one if fraps lagged, which I've already said it didn't...

Yes, It wasn't JUST pointing at you, I was saying to anyone if it lagged, Try wegame.

FRAPS only lags if you don't know how to set the FPS.

my fraps lagged me at the christmas event, because I set it to record at 25fps. I didnt know that it actually changes the fps to 25 D:

FRAPS only lags if you don't know how to set the FPS.

So thats why I lag. I usaly get around 30-40 fps without fraps, and with it I'm lucky to get 20 :s

I can't even tell the difference with my FPS when I'm recording.

well fraps does knock about 10 to 20 fps off when its recording, from what ive seen.

70fps off, 50fps on for me.

You guys probably haven't heard about ZD Soft Game Recorder which is what I'm using atm :). I mean at times it gets laggy while recording but it makes your video size small and able to speed up your time in making your movies. But selection video bit rate from Low - High will vary on how many FPS you can record from.. like for etc.. video bit rate at low would help it from not lagging, medium will lag rarely but mostly smooth, high lags mostly but good video quality.

I've tried ZD, but it lagged as hell...
Why not use a movie editing software for fwd?

Mhm.. I know there is another one which doesn't lag but it cost money an there isn't many.. free stuff for it. Which is that Planet Game Cam I had the older versions and they where awesome :) they make the movie files even smaller and video quality better you can choose options like what format you want it to be in video bit rate and etc.. also can put your own Watermark on the video.. which is really neat for movie making. Yea if anyone can get one :) you should link us or something so we can all use it that be nice :D and btw this program totally rocks out FRAPS.
