Could you give us some more information? Like what you've tried already, what part of your PC is the limiting factor and what you intend to do with the result (is high quality necessary, do you need to record sound in real time, etc etc etc)?

Because I'm generally a nice guy, I had a google for you, and the best resource I found was:

Which also has a whole load of stuff in the comments. I'd try ffmpeg with x11grab ... there's a bit of a howto here:

Mostly I need it for recording a java game and I want it to run smoothly,so I need a recorder, which wont slow it down. I dont need to record audio.
In windows there are hypercam , camtasia etc. programs that saves the files as uncompressed avi and that wont slow your comp.

I'll try that xvidcap and post here is it what im looking for.

Im looking for mostly none resource taking, because the java game uses memory a lot too.

There's vnc2swf.

It's not that "fast" in terms of the quality of the flash video it produces, since it's only recording a VNC session, but since it's also only VNC you can have the VNC recorder running on a different machine than the desktop you're trying to capture. The VNC server doesn't seem to take up much resources.
