Good software for vid game recording

i have fraps but the recorded vids are HUGE and they skip badly.
are there any others out there

counterstrike lets you capture to an avi file. what game do you want to record?

after consulting fraps seems to be the best. i just need a program to compress it which i have. fraps says it cant compress while it records so they will be huge.

im looking to record some parts of MMORPGS. WoW and Guild Wars

Yep fraps is probably the best, I use it and it gives excellent quality

its just right now i cant get it to record vids. dont know what is wrong with it
