I got a GTX680 for christmas, and since I've been looking for an excuse to get rid of my old monitor for a while, I was considering buying an ultra highres one now that I got a card that can handle it and the money to do so.
My biggest consideration is that I fraps a lot (in WoW, mostly), and I was wondering if nearly doubling the amount of pixels would cripple my ability to do so? Currently I capture to a separate generic 7200 RPM HDD dedicated just to fraps video, and I'm able to easily do so at 1920x1080 at 30-40 fps with no issues at all, but would going from 2 million pixels to over 3,6 million pixels be too much for a single HDD to handle?
Could I get around it, if it became a problem, by capturing at half-resolution, and would that case a noticeable decrease in quality or look really weird?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and maybe respond to it!
