Use the 12.7beta drivers... they are exceptional drivers.

1) Download Driver Sweeper here.
2) Download Catalyst 12.7beta drivers here but don't install.
3) Custom uninstall AMD software through the "Control Panel" and select everything and reboot.
4) Run Driver Sweeper and clean AMD drivers and reboot.
5) Re-install CCC and reboot.

6) CCC 12.7 CAP profile

Where does it say you have 11.5 drivers? Run..."dxdiag" and look at the Display 1 tab.

So, what does dxdiag say? There are two possibilities:

1) You have the wrong graphics driver installed, in which case dxdiag will tell you.
2) The game is wrong and thinks you have 11.5 because it doesn't recognize the new driver properly.

What to do next depends on the answer to these two questions.

1) it doesnt say ive got the wrong driver
2) it also shows up in gpu - z so its not the game.
