Experiencing Low FPS

Good day,

I am starting out with UE4 and game design in general.

My specs are as follows:
I7 6700 @ 4.00 ghz
16 Gig ram
1080 GFX card
1tb ssd

I am getting a lot of fps drops the moment I put in any assets. Is my equipment incorrect or is there a diff problem.

Sorry for noob question.
