You don't have to enable Crossfire w/ the HD5970. It is always enabled.

GPUz says its disabled and previous owner said it had to be enabled to have both GPU active while gaming

Have you tried running a game to see if both cores are being engaged?

how do i see if both core are engaged while gaming ?

Open two instances of GPU-Z. One for each GPU. Then launch a game. Quit the game and look to see if both cores had a load on them.

Did you use driver sweep to totally remove the nvidia drivers? You probably have some lingering around. It's a free program.

They won't launch because you deleted the PhysX software. Download and install this.
