FPS drop in open world games only

Whenever I play open world games I cant get stable or high fps.
Is this normal?
I have just built a new computer w/ these specs=

windows 7 64 bit
Asrock z87 fatal1ty killer mobo
16gb ram 1600mhz
gtx 760 2gb superclocked
i7 4770k

all drivers have been updated and installed correctly

FPS in DayZ standalone- avg. 34
GTA 4- avg.57
The forrest- avg. 45

All settings are maxed and the fps will drop to 30 and spring back up too whatever is listed above.
Other games such as Borderlands 2 and Black ops 2 settings maxed I can get 120 fps solid.

Is this normal?

  1. Well, those games are very touch on any system, no matter what setup. The 760 just won't keep up in rendering all of those textures at such a range.

    GTA 4 is apparently a horrible port, meanwhile, The Forest and DayZ aren't done. All 3 of those games are poorly optimized (won't use a PC's resources effectively), though there's hope of improvement in future updates for The Forest and DayZ.

    There could be other issues preventing good performance in those games on your PC. Maybe it's fixable. I'm not sure.
  3. A 2 year old console port and a 2 year old cel shaded game performing better than 2 unfinished games is working as expected, GTA IV was just a terrible port.
  4. GTA IV was a terrible port. GTX V may have had more attention put into it.
