Question / Help Recent 3 hour recording was 200Gb? Is that normal?

So I recently recorded 3 hours of gameplay using Nvidia NVENC x264 (new) using CQP with a CQ of 16 - All other settings were the ones recommended via the guide found on this forum.

My question is, is this a normal size for these settings? Also considering I'll be uploading them to Youtube after editing and compiling, is this quality even necessary or is it overkill? As once it Remuxed the file from MKV to MP4 thats 400Gb all up... (Deleted the MKV after Remux but still)

I'll certainly be using handbrake on this recording.

How do you guys manage storage and file sizes of you videos without editing them like in the next few days to then be able to delete the raw recordings?
