Anyone know what I can do? Crossfire is off

I must agree with HonestGamer i have completed the game with the great help of Cheat Happens Trainer.
When i purchased this game in the UK i always go to the same company called "GAME" i'm not shouting thats how it is,they always ask me when i go to pay will your pc meet the minimum spec requirements, i reply well if its unopened i will bring it back! the point is with these new games you do need a High End PC to run them and its a shame really because everyone has not got the cash for these top spec computers which in the long run also costs these game studio's a lot of lost custom.
Have you noticed though that these studio's now try to make sure their games play on windows XP with service pack3 i think thats because the greatest number of pc users have windows XP installed,i must admit i think windows XP was the best and still is out of all the windows versions.
I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit straight from the shelf and its a Hewlett Packard HPE 590uk and it plays anything up to date,it won't be long b4 i will have to upgrade the way these studios are moving on with gaming.
sorry for the long input.
I may not have a wimpy PC, but it ain't a God Box either (Q9550s @ 3.8GHz, Radeon HD6950 Firmware updated to 6970 at 6970 speeds with ROP and shader cores opened up, 4GB RAM, Auzentech Xplosion 7.1 DTS Connect sound card).
Rage runs at a constant 60 FPS for me (both prior and after the update). With a few ini tweaks, there are no pop-ins, no low res textures, and no issues at all.
Here's what I posted to Arstechnica when the game first shipped:
1) D/L the latest ATi or nVidia drivers (Google ATi Rage performance driver or nVidia Rage beta driver to get to them)
2) Make a CFG file in your Rage install folder in the /base folder called Rageconfig.CFG. Within this file place the lines:
seta vt_pageimagesizeuniquediffuseonly2 "8192"
seta vt_pageimagesizeuniquediffuseonly "8192"
seta vt_pageimagesizeunique "8192"
seta vt_pageimagesizevmtr "8192"
seta image_preload "1"
seta image_useCache "1"
That should work for graphics cards using anywhere from 512MB of VRAM to 1.5GB+ (if you have 2GB or more of VRAM you can try altering the numbers in quotes to 16384, the figure I posted earlier is the safest bet).
3) Force v-sync "on" in your graphic card's control panel.
That should alleviate all texture pop-in and screen tearing. Now you're good to go!
If you'd like to go a bit further, you can add these command to your desktop shortcut for Rage, or to Launch Option for the STEAM version: +com_skipIntroVideo 1 +image_anisotropy 16 +image_usecompression 0 +m_smooth 0 +fc_maxcachememoryMB 1024
For maxcachememory to work you'll need to create two folders. Go to your users/username/appdata/local folder and create a fold called id software. Inside that id software folder, create a folder named rage. Now you're done.
That worked wonders for me. #1 should be a non-issue since both nVidia and ATi have had several beta and WHQL releases since Rage first shipped. Some of the other stuff was addressed in the first patch. Still, it's a good guide to follow.
Edit got passed that. Now my system is only a 3gb ram intel core 2 duo 2ghz and a ati hd2400 and it runs on my system bar the rendering issues and the ctd's
