Specs: Windows 7, i7 920 @ 3.6/6gb ddr3 1600
Hey guys i need some advice from experts. I am planning on recording alot of gameplay footage from Battle field bad company 2 and i need if i should get a second harddrive. I heard that if i record footage on the second harddrive than my main harddrive i can get alot more FPS ingame. Reason im asking is because right now the game is almost unplayable. my specs are the following

Core I7 920 @ 3.6ghz (air cooled by Zalman 9900)
EVGA X58 Mobo
6gb DDR3 RAM @ 1600MHZ
2 BFG GTX 295s SLIed
Hitachi 1TB HDD
Cosair 1000W powersupply
Antec 900 case
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

So what do u guys think and thanks in advance

PS: i run the game on 1920x1200 and everything is maxed out expect anti aliasing is 4x

Just curious - why do you want to record game footage & what do you plan on doing with it?

Thanks, but I have no interest. Like I said, I was just curious what you were going to do with it.

I kinda doubt if there are very many people who have experience with your particular question. It would depend on several factors:

How the game handles recording.
If the drives are on separate controllers.
Other unknown factors

I suggest that you do some experiments yourself and check the results.
