Sell both of your ATI cards and get an 8800 series.

As for CrossFire? Well, pretty much the P35 does and so does the P965 but between these two, the P35 is better.

Although the 975X is known to do CrossFire in a 8x8 mode whereas the P965 is 16x4, not sure what the P35 does but nevertheless, for overclocking the P35 is better overall.

Well, welcome to the world of electronics, where you pay top dollar today and you get crap tomorrow.

I'd sell both and go for a GTX, it'll be much better. You might end up putting only about $200 extra for a GTX.
