The following video demonstrates the Nvidia Shadowplay bug and also helps to resolve this issue. Until an official patch is released from Nvidia you can use the fix provided in the video below to record your gameplay using Nvidia Shadowplay at a stable 60 FPS.

While higher refresh rate monitors are not mainstream yet, people are buying them as they are getting cheaper. 1440p and 4K displays are becoming common as well as prices of these displays are dropping and people are experiencing the experience that these displays have to offer.
