I recommend open broadcasting software most call it OBS. Mostly meant for living streaming but I find it very easy and good for recording.

Depending on your PC, NVIDIA's ShadowPlay feature (new in the later versions of NVIDIA GeForce Experience) might also be an option.

I haven't tried it personally, but it might be worth looking into.

I've tried it. Haven't tested high-end games, but the ones I did test had no performance impact at all. File size depends on what's recorded though; had 4 minutes and 22 minutes of recordings, both at 1.7 GB (1080p @ 60 FPS).

Hi,

 

I've used CamStudio, Fraps, and Windows Movie Maker.  They all work well. If you really want to take it to the next level eventually, then you might want to consider Sony Vegas.

Fraps is well worth the money. I've been using it for 6 years now and it hasn't let me down. However, it does record lossless so file sizes are very large (4GB/55secs @ 1080p).
