    Hey Guys!

    I respect everyone's opinion! I have come to you guys with a problem and a question. So currently I record games with Reflector for my Ios/Android Games and Elgato for my Console games. Now I am trying to record PC games. I tried recording the last few days and have only run into problems with lag and other issues. So I was wondering if my laptop specs were good enough to record PC games without lag or other issues. I have a Asus Notebook. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU 1.80GHz 2.40 GHz. RAM 8 GB. 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor. GeForce 745m graphics card. 1 TB Hard Drive. Windows 8 and currently using Open Broadcast Software to record my PC gameplay. And I have only tried to record the new game Stranded Deep. So I have been having problems with Lag in all my gameplay unless I turn down my quality to toaster mode. Are these specs good enough to actually record smooth good quality gameplay out of? Or do I need to upgrade my equipment? Let me know if you guys need any other information. Thank you guys for any help! You guys are always helpful!

    Where are you getting the games from that you are recording? ie: Amazon, game manufacturer's websit etc.
