Fraps records raw video. It uses the least amount of resources because it doesn't perform any kind of compression or other processing.
So if you want to just record video and your PC isn't very powerful, then yes. Fraps is one of the best options available out there.
The down side is that you require a lot of space to store your recordings. I remember that 40 minutes of dota took about 62GB of space on 1080p.

If you do have a decent PC, you can use OBS. It will take up more CPU, and perform well on games that are more GPU bound. The recording settings can be adjusted, so you save more space.
