Camera Choice Help

I am currently at a crossroads... I have sold my HDV camera and now have the money to get either a 7D and 5DMII.. shall i either get a 7D and buy accessories and a 5D with maybe one lens?

Yes i know 5D is full sensor and blah blah blah and now they both have the same shooting modes...heres the thing though... i shoot club promos of dances and parties in a darkened atmosphere... now i do have primes with 1.4 and low F stops and such.. will there be a noticeable difference in noise and image sharpness if i shot on a 7D with these VS the full frame 5D?

also is the DOF greater on a 5D EVEN if i use a low aperture glass on a 7D.. ive heard that the 5D pops more and looks more DOF filmy....

thanks in advance!
