Looking at doing a few how to videos but looking for a high quality screen recording software that will be less than $50 USD, if at all possible. Thanks!

Quicktime Pro does it for free with GREAT results.
If you want to spend money on a more full-featured solution, Telestream Screencast is widely used.

Does it record sound as well? I plan to do some minor editing (as needed) in FCP X, assume this should not be an issue. Thanks for the fast response!

If you want to record in-computer audio, the cheat is to get an AUX cable and connect it to your headphone port then loop it to your microphone port -- given you have these ports.

If you have one of those Macs that ships with a single aux plug, you can try Soundflower.

If you want to double your budget, Screenflow is well worth it.

You can edit, title, even key green screen in it if you want. It also records audio.

What he said. ScreenFlow and Disk Warrior are the two best $100 purchases I've made in the last few years. ScreenFlow support is excellent too.

Screenflow or Camtasia. I'm doing a bunch with Camtasia right now... great quality...

I use Screenflow on the Mac and Camtasia on my PC. If you do or plan to do a lot of screen captures these programs are quite worth while. If it is one shot or a few shot kind of deal just use what is built into OSX.
