also, you probably should check your tesselation settings in CCC, makign sure its not switched to something crazy like 64x, might as well leave it on amd optimised if its not already. while ur there check ur AA settings, you may have selected edge detect or something similar, change it to box and try max payne 3 after these have been checked coz with this game the main performance killers are AA and tesselation.

I have 20 fps in game (i'm in the first part of game). My Pc:

I7 920@4GHz
4GB DDR3 1600
Monitor 1920X1080

All graphic setting in game to maxumum possible.....it's a normal thing or have problem?
turn down MSAA if you are using that heavily, it lowers FPS

Load up Max Payne 3, play a few minutes, minimise the game and then take a print screen of your Task Manager's performance tab. Let us see the resources!
