My computer specs:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 820 2.80Ghz (Quad Core)
Hard Drive: 1650GB + 500 External HDD
Memory: 5GB DDR3 RAM
Display: 1920 x 1080 rez External Monitor: LG Flatron W2052TQ 23" HDMI
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB DDR5
Motherboard: Asus Military Grade one

I try to fraps combat arms or mw2

resolution 1280x1024 on high settings

60 fps
full size
no sound
lock frame rate unchecked

lags like hell..

If i turn the resolution any lower on mw2 it looks crappy and still is choppy
(i don't really have a problem with lowering combat arms' settings)

but is there something else i can try, help me out :)

Lock the frame rates at 60 (with and without VSync enabled to see which is best). If that doesn't work, drop to 30fps.

Your HD5770 is a good mid-range gaming card, but even high-end cards will struggle to record games with Fraps at 60fps when you're playing on high settings.

Have you tried reducing the in-game settings, things like AA, draw distance and textures?

Try this or this

otherwise, see if degragging your system will help, don't try to save the records onto the external drive either. If you have a faster drive 7,200 RPM or so will be good but faster is better
HyperCam is DEFINATELY not for recording high definition gameplay,
Gamecam isn't all that good either.. I am mostly searching for good ways to reduce my fraps lag..

So locking will help? :3

I will try that.. Also trying to change up my ingame settings

By AA do you mean Anti Aliasing or w.e. ?

I have a 5670, about the only way I can get 60fps constantly with Fraps on is to turn off Vsync. Then I run at 180-200fps with Fraps off, and 60fps with it on. Otherwise, I'm running 60fps with Fraps off and 30fps with it on.
Btw, the higher framerate you record at, the bigger your video files in Fraps will be, so....I just usually set Fraps to record at 30fps, keep Vsync on, and go with that....
And,
to be honest I think I read somewhere that the human eye can't tell any difference once you get above 30fps anyway

To add to what every has said I have found with a few things about fraps over the course of time I have used it.
One I have two internal drives so I game from one drive and I save the video file on the other. Reason being I assume it's hard for your hard drive to read information from one program and write information from another program. Unless my hard drives are just crap but I would like to assume they are not. (West Digital Caviar Black)
Two I record at 29.9 fps. Reason I do this is because sometimes the audio and video get out of sync when you try to upload your video to youtube if you have it set higher than that. I don't know why that is but it just happens.
Make note that I only lowered the fps to 29.9 to post to youtube. Otherwise once I started gaming from one hard drive and recording on the other it didn't lag my system at all.
