I lag whilst screen recording games (computer nerds please)?

Okay, I tried posting something about this before, but got no good responses. So I will try again but simpler. So here's my problem: My computer can run games smoothly without lag while i'm not recording my screen, but as soon as I start recording my computer lags like a *****.

My computer can run games smoothly without lag while i'm not recording my screen, but as soon as I start recording my computer lags like a *****. Were talking from 500 FPS down to 10. And it's not the fault of the recording program, as I've tried 14 different ones, and I still lag. My computer is definitely good enough to record game play videos (it has 8 GIGS of ram, and a crazy good processor and graphics card) but for some reason it lags even with the high specs. All I want to do is record some Minecraft game play without lag! Is that too much to ask for? AAAHHH!!!
I see these people with crappy-ish computers making smooth videos but my 8 GIG RAM computer cannot? this is crazy stupid! Please do not suggest new screen recorders for me to try, instead tell me how to fix this problem. Thanks!
