I've tried some things like Fraps and Bandicam, but both cause huge frame drops or glitches my game. Overwolf doesn't support GTA SA and I'd like an application to record in-game footage with it.

I use OBS. It's a bit difficult to set up, though. There's like, NO fps drop.
I have mine set to quite low quality, I don't record to make like sick videos, I only record 24/7 to catch funny moments and for complaints, and the best way to accomplish that is by using low quality presets to preserve disk space & FPS even more.

How much is the avarage disk space a video file takes if you record for one hour straight? I am using bandicam and I set it up very good where 2 minutes and 25 seconds video file is just 98mb.

really depends, a one with good quality of 10 minutes took maybe 270 mb, one that took 3 minutes just had 7mb

A 15 minute video is 2.66 gigs, you go ahead and find out how much that is for 2 minutes.
Probably a little more, but as I said, I really don't care. I only record for funny moments/complaints and not for quality, I keep my videos for a week in-case and then I delete them. Don't forget I record constantly, not just occasionally.

EDIT: Didn't read it properly, a 1 hour video is 10,7 gigs.
