    I have never played this game, so I might do a lets play.(probably not)

    My specs:
    intel i7 3770k clocked at @4.22
    16GB Corsair Vengeance Memory (1866mhz)
    Graphics card GTX 670
    Not running the emulator of my SSD (OS Drive). Dont think running the emulator on the SSD would make any difference.
    How does this look?
    Recorded with camtasia

    Video settings:
    Internal Resolution x2
    4x SSAA Anti-Aliasing
    Anisotropic Filtering x4
    Fullscreen resolution 1280x1024 camtasia recording resolution)
    codec: techsmith at 100% quality
    How does this look?

    Looks good to me. Sound is a bit quiet though.

    I did that on purpose lol.
    My emulation setup has the game audio set to low so I can do let's plays.
    Forgot to turn it up for that video :P

    I think you might have posted this in the wrong section? I could be wrong though.

    No you are right. Wanted to post it in the art section. No idea how it ended up here.
    Sorry, my bad.
    How does it look though :)?

    Well it looks fine really. But WW isnt really a good test of that because its cell shaded. At least thats my opinion, but it looks fine for your specs.

    It looks good, but your aspect ratio is wrong - which bugs the crap out of me. Wind Waker is 4:3, not 16:9, unless you run the widescreen hack on it.

    I really don't know for recording purposes, but only for emulation... I think you can do better with those specs
    In that game, I get stable 60 fps with x3 IR, 1080p with only my 3570k (stock 3.8GHz) and no GPU (only using the HD4000)

    Use Bandicam for less CPU usage.
    Camtaisa recored takes much CPU.

    Fuck's sake, that looks nice. Would be nice to see some actual gameplay though, but with such a BEAST set-up, it really shouldn't pose much of a problem.

    Vids like these make me feel bad about my LoL addiction, which basically disables me from playing anything else than that....

    I can max out everything and still run it smooth. But for youtube, I didnt see the point :) Could go 4x native etc and still play and record smoothly. But I wanna keep it stable for Let's Plays and such.
    I Have dxtory. I only use camtasia because of the ease of rendering and settings lol.
    Too lazy to do colour correction or whatnot on Sony Vegas lol.

    I actually feel I didnt maximize the hardware as much as I could :( With the next gen intel CPU with new socket around the corner, I feel shit that I upgraded now.
    Probably going to get the GTX 7xx series graphics card by end of this year and catch up on the new intel socket in a year or two when its out.

    As I said in the comments section of the vid, camtasia sucks out CPU usage big time and lags. Get Bandicam, or if you have fast HDD, you can run Fraps.
    Heck, I get an average of 56 FPS on my laptop(with 2x IR, 2x AA and it's a Core i7-3610QM@2.3 GHz). You should be able to record that thing at 60 FPS if you use something better to record.
    Also, here's a trick if you really want to record with Camtasia. Record everything with Bandicam/Fraps/Dxtory, whatever and then play through the video while recording with Camtasia. Lags a lot less.

    Camtasia 8, yes. Recording at 30FPS because youtube limits it on 30 anyway.
    Yes I could indeed. I have SSD as operating, one raid 0 setup and a 2TB drive for games and data.. fast enough drives to use fraps and such. But I mentioned above, due to the ease of editing I use camtasia.

    edit: ilman, just saw your edit.
    Yup could record with dxtory and edit with camtasia :) BUT..there is a but lol. When recording with dxtory, adding multiple audio channels is possible and camtasia doesnt pick it up. It picks up everything as 1 and editing audio would be hard like that. Sony Vegas picks it up fine.

    Got more random videos :):





    Now a test from my 3DS video capture :)




    Yes, I know about the aspect ratio. Some would like it the original way.. but me.. I like no black bars on the videos lol.
