So,as i said in the question,many games have different FPS on different levels (on some levels the FPS is great,on some levels the FPS is a little bit worse,but then on some parts on the same levels the FPS is really bad),have FPS drops (It's like the game is the whole time 90-60FPS but then it falls to 20FPS for 3 seconds and comes back to normal) and finally Lag Spikes (Not sure if that's how is it called,but it's when i play a game with perfect FPS but sometimes you can see the characters aren't doing the right movement (one part of the animation lacks because of the lag)).Almost all games have atleast on of that...and when I say almost all it's actually all games I have tried except PES 2013 and NBA 2K14(tough sometimes FPS drops are visible in NBA too).And it's not because I do not pass the minimum sys. req. ,because actually in most games i passed the recommended too! Games I have tried:

Lego Batman 2 DC Super Heroes Demo (2012) (passed recommended) different FPS on different places of the level.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes (2013) (Passed Minimum only,graphics card wasn't good for recommended) Different FPS on different places of different levels and free roaming FPS drop.

Just Cause 2 (2010) (passed recommended) it was really slow on the default options,so i lowered them it was a little bit better but still the FPS dropped and it fully laged on big Explosions near me.

Joe Danger 2 (2012) (passed recommended) It had only a little bit lag spikes,only a little bit... but it lagged on explosions.

But the worst of all to me is: Lego Star Wars II (2006) Lag spikes...ok it said that it isn't verified that it's compatible with my version of windows (windows 7 64bit) but it could run so i am really pissed off that it has lag spikes.

Rayman Origins (2011) (Passed Recommended) - Annoying fps drop.Looks sometimes like some slow motion scenes.

So help me...and here are things that I have tried or you shouldn't suggest me:

Changing my visuals to make my new PC look like i bought it Ten years ago
To scan for virus (already did a full virus scan with avast but no malware)
Upgrade my PC because i told you i passed the minimum and recommended sys. req. in most games( as you can see except in Lego MSH)
To lower settings...I mean why it's a new PC it should run on default settings perfectly.
To disable Avast while playing or to turn on silent/gaming mode.Tried both and nothing.
To update graphics card and windows and install chipset drivers...all done.

And finally,here are my system specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Intel Core i3- 4130 CPU 3.4GHZ (4 CPUS)
6GB of Ram
Directx11
Nvidia GeForce GT 630 graphics card.

So please help me!!!!!

More action takes more graphics power to process it. So GPUs slow down.

Every game will experience some form of a drop in frames at some point or another. Or at least it should, due to the content of the scene. A person with the a gtx 780Ti playing BF4 would probably still experience a varying range of frames in different parts of the map. It all depends on the amount of stuff that has to be processed and rendered. If you have 8 people around you, you'll have more things to render than having nobody around you. the frames drops aren't that surprising to me especially with that graphics card.

To fix, either overclock your gpu, or buy a stronger gpu. If you buy a stronger GPU, you may need to upgrade the PSU depending on what your budget and what you want.

Yet it's not the only option. It wouldn't matter whether it's new or not. Which is why I gave you the two best options to better the graphical performance. Either buy a new card, or you overclock your current one.

Play a game and monitor your FPS.
Stare at a wall, note your FPS. Stare at a fire or any particle effect, note your FPS.
That is pretty much why different levels can have different FPS'.

Also your gaming on a GT630... Of course your not getting good performance. You didn't pass the recommended settings, more like the minimum. The GT prefix means its only good for HTPC usage, which is just a way of saying it can run the desktop, it is not a gaming card.

Accidentally picked your answer as the best one.Don't get me wrong but you guys are complete dumbasses i am never going to ask anything ever again for help on this site.We returned it to the one from who we bought it and eventually he fixed it,i have no idea what he did but he didn't change the graphics card for sure (information from Dxdiag).All games run smoothly except Lego Indiana Jones 2 and Lego Star Wars II due to the fact that Windows 7 64 Bit didn't exist at the times these games came out.
