    You can use Camtasia Studio from Techsmith. I would recommend it as i myself received satisfactory results from it. And as far as price is concerned you can always search for the pre-cracked torrent of the paid version!
    Good day!!

    I have used many but currently stick with CamStudio. Lightweight, easy to use and does a good job of recording.

    Fraps is good

    Fraps is the best If you have Faster Processor & Enough RAM.
    Alternatively ZD Soft Screen Recorder Will Smoothly work on Lower Processor & RAM.

    One thing that others haven’t mentioned is that if you want to record an Xbox 360 or PS3 (the second is tricky) then you will need something like the BlackMagic Intensity in order to capture from HDMI to a PC. Thanks to the PS3’s copy protection, this can be problematic but one thing you do not want to do is skimp on a capture device!

    The Xbox doesn’t have the same HDCP encoding which the PS3 and other BluRay players have, so it’s an easier machine to record from. I’m not sure if that’s what you want to do, but plenty of research is required before selecting a capture device is necessary in order to ensure that you can capture the signal.

    Otherwise, FRAPS is the best tool for the job on a Windows PC as far as I know. It’s not entirely free, but if you’re going to be doing a lot of capturing then it’s probably worth it.
