Here is my situation. I currently use a program called fraps to capture video while playing Games. I was told by someone that if I were to purchase an external HD and use the like to capture I would no longer see the performace decrease that I do now.
My system Is as follows:
ABiT NF7-S Nforce 2
AMD 3000 Barton
Cosair 3500 1 gig
GForce FX 5900 Ultra 256mb
and I have 2 36gig WD raptors in raid 0
With a 120gig HD for storage.
Im looking to Add an External HD if it will infact increase the performace of play while I am using fraps. Logically this makes sense as The game I play requires much from my HD.
Was this info givin to me false? Will i see improvement? and if not what can I do?
