    When you are in open areas or if there are more people shooting, your gpu has to do more work so there will be less fps.

    ok so your specs are cool and the games working fine. No need to worry as you have high ram, the game might not crash. And yes about your fps problem, its normal with those specs. As when you are playing in the open there are a number of things to be processed.Also these things like trees and all are complex stuff which eat up your f/s rate.As you are telling its multiplayer, well it tends to be even slower.

    Anyways what you can do is upgrading your processors to like i5 or i3.But there will always be a difference in outdoor and indoor experience.

    **just for the fact my gta 4 mp works @ 7.9 f/s rate.

    If you find it use ful say thanksssssssssssssss........for sure;)
