Once you get both cards out of maxed status you can worry about which has the higher APR. For now divide up the money so you get both balances down.

Dont worry about interest rates or FICO scores in that they will take card of themselves.You could also follow jmbfl's plan which is both CCC friendly and FICO friendly.
