  1. Your current setup (950 + 280x) should be able to handle the games you play, the crossfire won't give you that much, sure you can crossfire it but still is it worth it?
  2. would it be better to sell the 280x and get a 970nvidia? or would crossfire of 2x be better
  3. crossfire 280x would be faster in games that support it.

    If you have a good CPU cooler, I would overclock to get the most performance out of it if you are going crossfire, or 970.

    The CPU should be alright with 280x crossfire, there will be some games the CPU might hold it back, but you can always Overclock the CPU to get more out of it. Honestly I don't think you'll have many problems running them 2 cards.
