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

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

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.
