If I have $20,000 to spend, would it be better to pay off a high interest credit card which would save me $450 a month, or pay off a smaller balance credit card and my vehicle which would save me $950 a month?

I would use the $20,000 to pay off the high interest credit card.  Then, I would immediatly put the $450 a month towards the other credit card to pay it off as quickly as possible.
