There is no audio desync with Fraps, because Fraps records it without sending it over a line.

Thats true. So If'm recording with Hauppage HD PVR 2 in h264 with loseless format and then that file I import in Premiere and render with my settings that shouldnt be any different then my current completed file, in any term.

Don't go for the Roxio unless you already have a good video editor because the one that it comes with(VideoWave) is pretty bad, at least from what I've used of it.  It crashes all the time, not really too many choices for actual editing, although you can record wii with it so that's a plus I guess.

I can tell you from experience that the Roxio Capture HD is terrible, at least for me. I would go with Elgato. Or if you just want to record gameplay nicely I loved the standard version of the Roxio capture card, not the HD version.

Me, not interested in those, unless the system I'm using is low spec or I'm playing on the real console (which I don't). Stock up multiple high-spec video cards, an SSD or two, as much RAM as possible, and let FRAPS do the rest.

And with emulators, just use their built-in AVI recorders. No need to worry here as native resolution is low

That's ok but not for everyone. It's much more cheaper to buy capture card and enjoy in game instead buying hardware which is more then enough for playing game only because of recording.

Can actually someone confirm me how much Elgato use (cpu and memory usage and task manager) while recording ?
I have only 5 days more to decide and I'm really confused. From what i've found most gamers on yt are using Elgato but I'm concerned about FPS drops. I guess it's better then Fraps in any case ?

Take it with grain of salt (based on the LGHD and LGP). Using the hardware encoder for local recordings, it should be about 10% max (because of the USB), 5% max on PCI-E. But in any way, you can't compare software encoder (dxtory, fraps) that redirects the frame draw through it's recording engine (and gives problems) and a capture card that runs in it's own little world. And for PC recording, you shouldn't use the pass-through (on USB devices), it's awful.

Ummm, the elgato site says "With advanced hardware H.264 encoding, you can capture in stunning HD quality, while keeping the file size low.", but when I watched a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKciQb7WUkU) it said it doesn't have hardware encoder. If it really doesn't, then it's not really worth for PC recording.

I havethe Elgato and its a good recorder for HD, probably the best. The problem is, its ONLY for HD systems because it uses HDMI cables. That means only 360, PS3, and Wii U. anything else, I would go for the Roxio

DethMagnetik I absolutely agree with you , Elgato is awesome .

To clarify a little, the Elgato can record SD games just fine, you just need the adapter they sell on their site for $10. It works all the way down to the Atari 2600, although I've only tested it to the NES and it worked perfectly.

OT: Well...I've switched sides and I love my Elgato Game Capture HD more than my HD PVR 2. The Elgato is just so much better at recording, although the bitrates are a bit out there, seeing as the lowest quality for component is 7 Mbps and I used to record with my HD PVR 2 at 8 Mbps, and that was almost maxed out. If you were looking for another one, then the Elgato HD is definitely better than the HD PVR 2 now I'd say. It's about the size of an external HDD, doesn't require a power supply, and works with more systems.

Downsides, the videos are not processed while recording, and only after you hit the record button again to stop the recording will it start processing to make the file. This is also bad because you must keep your USB cable plugged in while it's processing otherwise things might screw up and you can lose the footage.
