Lower FPS in GTAV than expected

Hi guys,
Lately in GTA V I've been getting lower FPS than what I should be expecting.
I run the game on mostly high and very high (which is what the game set for me on first launch) and I get anywhere between 30-80fps with an average of around 45 fps. This is strange because my specs are at at least equal to the recommended -- if not better.

What I've tried so far is first downloading the beta 15.4 drivers from AMD which didn't change anything. I then tried turning down the settings: no matter if I changed everything to the lowest settings or changed the resolution down from 1080p my fps would not change. I'm lost now.

My questions are what FPS do you think I should expect? Am I over-estimating my PC? If I'm not, what can I do about this if anything? Could it potentially be an optimisation issue?

My specs:
i7 3770k @ 3.50ghz stock
8GB ram
MSI r9 290x

Any help is appreciated!

    Try disabling all options in the Advanced Graphics menu (They are truly demanding even with higher end machines) as well as making the MSAA 2x instead of 4x, I heard TB (TotalBiscuit, YouTube PC Critic) say that a higher MSAA above 2x drops performance quite heavily.
