How do I mask hardware detection on steam ran w/ Wine?

I'm running Steam through Wine and trying to run CSGO but I get an error for no CSM support because I use an ATI graphics card 7800 series. I've read about similar problems people were having and their solution was to mask the graphics card info by editing steam prefixed wine registry and altering VideoPciVendorID and VideoPciDevice IDs. I've tried this but the system information on steam hasn't changed, and I continue to get this error. So clearly I'm doing something wrong. Is there a way to stop steam from detecting this info at all?

Wine is 1.7.2 btw.

This is a result from a sudo apt-get update:
