More abouttime effect psu performance
R9 270X requires two 6-pin power leads from the PSU. Does yours have those? If not, you should get a new PSU that meets the requirements for the GPU.
if that's what you have and it has those connectors (shown on bottom of page) then you might not have enough to connect to the graphics card, and it might be a bit light on 12V power to drive your new graphics card
Green Power PSU's aren't very good , move to a reliable brand around 550w.
