Game Recording software

Recommended Posts

So I used Fraps and some other stuff way back in the day and I know about shadowplay, but my video card is not supported by it.  What are the best ones now a days?  I've read about plays.tv and open broadcast software on a google search but I wanted to see if any of you had some good ones to suggest?  I read this article http://www.pcworld.com/article/3040695/software/the-best-pc-game-video-capture-software-5-top-recording-tools-compared.html .

I am pretty good with computers but don't keep up with the newest tech as often as others so it doesn't have to be simple.  I've got an old Geforce 480 if that helps, and I don't want to upgrade, I got two in SLI that play everything just fine and not looking to upgrade any time soon.

So I gave plays.tv a try and even at the lowest settings it kills my in game FPS and the produced vids are choppy, I read up on it and this is a high speed program that uses existing hardware to do it's recording so if you have an older card it uses software to record, so basically if you have a card capable of shadowplay this would be a great program... Why would I use it if I could use shadowplay?  Anyway the search continues.

Ive somewhat developed a passion for MSI (makers of Afterburner) or id be kinda upset losing EVGA's shadowplay capabilities..  Yes SP can be a headache when its not functioning correctly, because of user error..  Ive seen it eat up resources, so I cant really play.  Ive seen SP not work once or twice.    How hard is to record that once in a 100 hrs gaming moment?  press control F10    Thats it    You've already set up the parameters, including the storage location.  Its so simple!

 

Id suggest giving OBS an opportunity to impress ya..  Obviously (imho) I cant offer any input without suggesting a switch to a newer card   1070 970   heck a great deal on a 950 may be just the ticket!   The AMD 480 is/was having over-voltage issues or Id say BOOM!  Take a chance on  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127953 which would provide ample pwr to run afterburner/ rptr  

p.s.  Id look into https://www.xsplit.com/
