Dayz performance ?

Im running a setup of an amd fx-6300 stock fan 3.5ghz, gtx 560, 8g 1866 ram, 500g, 250g hard drives, 600w psu, Asus atx M5A97 LE R2.0 mobo. I seem to bounce below and above 30 fps when in the 2 big city's. Canirunit.com says im well capable of running the dayz mod, so why such a low fps? When in the big cities my cpu hovers around 60% and my 560 goes around 40-50%, why?
Also my settings are all on high, at least the graphic ones like shadows, textures, details and whatnot. I have aa on low and the other one like AA disabled and all the other settings on low or disabled.
Also i apologize if this is in the wrong section. It made more sense when i first started typing this.

I have a 1090T and 6950 Twin Frozr 2 (Both at stock). Similar things happen for me, and one culprit is the zombies.

They are using full soldier skeletons, with almost none of the functionality being used. This is hard on the processor. If you change to 3rd person, generally this isn't a problem, but that's coming from a guy who thinks getting 17 FPS in Crysis is fine, since it only happens sometimes. No need, yet, to OC anything.

DayZ standalone, when it releases, should be about equal in terms of performance, but it (should) look nicer, with more zombies. Are you unsatisfied with the performance? Is it making the game unplayable? I don't know about CanIRunIt.com, but I'd say you can, if you can handle the lower frames. 3rd person helps a lot.

Well the game is completely playable, its just that when i finished upgrading my rig i though i was going to get a lot more from dayz. In all i have, the game plays great when away from cherno and electro, but in thoughs cities performance can drop quite a bit from time to time. As you said 3rd person really does help its just nice to be able to aim with precision in the cities because of all the bandits that camp around.

You are not alone my friend. ARMA 2 is tough enough to run without a mod running on top of it. The game is poorly optimised and it brings the best of PC's to their knees. I'm running an i5 3570k at 4.5GHz, 8GB RAM, XFX HD 6950 2gb and an SSD and I get 60fps outside cities, ~40-45 fps in cities. And that's with most settings on medium.

I'm not sure if you have optimised your graphics settings for performance yet but I find that doing the following helps:
- Turn Object Detail to Very Low (this reduces the amount of grass and the distance that buildings are rendered in high quality - can give a big performance boost)
- Turn HDR Quality to Normal
- Turn Anti-Aliasing to Low
- Turn ATOC to All Trees (All Trees + Grass will drop fps a lot)
- Turn PPAA to SMAA Low
- Turn Post Processing to Disabled
