I want to be able to record games without lagging I currently have an FX 4350 and a gtx 960 without recording i get like 400+fps playing mine craft, but once i start recording my fps starts majorly dropping and get huge lag spikes . I thought about upgrading to Intel like getting a i5-4690k and a new motherboard but wondering if there is a cheaper but just as good processor. If i get a fx 8350 is pretty cheap right now and if i got it i wouldn't have to get a new motherboard but i don't want to keep continuing with the same problems. I want something that will give me smooth game play while recording and just when i am playing. But i also want to play other games outside of minecraft like Dayz , Gta V, etc.

PC Specs:
AMD FX 4350
WD harddrive 500gb
sandisk ssd plus 120gb
Geforce GTX 960 SSC 4gb
mobo- MSI 760GMA -P34FX
PSU- Lepa N500
Corsair H80i v2

I want to get the 8350 FX but if its not really good for what i want i would just rather get a intel cpu , but i dont want to spend alot of money because i know I would have to get new Ram which is fine. I dont want to spend over like 500$ But also want to know if my build is decent or what i can do to get better game play and what i mentioned - Thanks in advanced

Do you have any suggestions for what i could get? like which cpu, or like what i should buy to upgrade ?
 
A ryzen mate , simple as .
1400,1500x,1600 depending on your budget.

That said - recording (if you're not/using shadowplay you should be) should have a minimal performance hit on fps.

Your issue is not related to CPU performance IMO.

It may be throttling , you're running a 125w CPU on a crap quality board , with a water cooler -which makes things much worse.

It could also easily be down to your hard drive not being fast enough , you're not stating model , if that's a 5400rpm drive recording to while playing it is going to impact performance badly.
 
get a R5 1600.

I recently upgraded from intel to a Ryzen 1600, and am extremely happy with it.

If you are looking at gaming performance, a fx8350 is about on par with Ryzen's lowest budget cpu, the 1200 or 1300x.

again, R5 1600 is a sweet spot budget and performance wise; you will be extremely happy with it as am i with mine.

There are tons of comparisons and videos with benchmarks for you to decide on youtube.

Cheers

It is a 7200rpm drive 32MB/mo
So if i upgraded to a better mobo i would good? Or would upgrading my mobo,cpu,ram be better
 




no, a newer mobo would not improve the speed of your hard drive the SATA ports would basically be the same as the ones on your old board
