Whever I click "Play" for Rage, steam freezes and crahses. I've tried over a dozen times and it does it everytime. Anyone have any idea why?

Is RAGE already out where you live? Are you sure your PC is capable of running RAGE? Have you checked Steam's RAGE forums for similar problems?

I don't think the i5 2500K paired with a HD6990 could run it. It's not possible.

I have a tendency of ignoring signatures.

Try removing the 'video' folder (rage->base->video). Make sure you back up the folder if you need to put back the vids later.
