    Can anyone point ..

    in the right direction for reading materials to understand what I need?

    Goal is video capture during pvp in GW:2 and MOP with decent graphics

    -End game 25-man with higher end settings MOP
    -Video Capture during challenge mode dungeons

    I don't wanna get overkill on a new build but I'm having a hard time to keep
    up with relevance and what's what.

    Ill link 2 builds one of which will be a cheaper build but capable of recording, and a higher end build capable of better recording.

    Much more expensive but capable of severely higher quality, 2 1tb WD caviar blacks in Raid 0 specifically for recording will optimize your recordings even more.
