yes your psu is strong enough as for bottlenecking it depends on the game. if its cpu bound then yes you will have issues with crossfire with that build. if there gpu bound then no it will run them fine.

700w should be enough but you didnt list what kind of PSU it is, as a cheap PSU isnt really 700w but a more expensive quality PSU would be.

I had a 7870XT running on a fx4300 and I only found out I was bottlenecking it is when I played bf4 in January, but the game was badly optimized during that month. I would say yes, but I would recommend flicking it off and getting a 8320-8350 just to be safe. I brought a r9 290 tri-x and was considering your CPU but it would properly just bottleneck it tbh... but this is my opinion/advise others may argues against it

From a quick Google search, I want you to literally throw this PSU till it smashes on the ground. That's how worthless, unreliable this PSU is. Invest in a Cosair RM or Seasonic x series.
