PSU sufficient for GPU upgrade?

Here's my current build. I'm told my GPU isn't quite sufficient to meet minimum system requirements for Battlefront (2015), so I'm debating a GPU upgrade. I'm thinking either double up on my current GPU with crossfire or go with something in the R9 280 to R9 390 range. Would my PSU wattage be sufficient for this? Don't want to just go by wattage calculator as it may be close depending on what I go with.

Get a new GPU, don't CF low end cards. Not worth it.

I would not use more than a gtx970 on that PSU. If you want to go high end AMd, you DEFINITELY need to replace it with a quality unit.

You build is enough for Battlefront honestly. Even on low the game still looks fantastic.

You GPU will handle Battlefront with no problem.

Awesome! Thanks all for the help! Probably wait till next Black Friday to upgrade GPU then. Anyone playing Battlefront with similar specs and could give me a frame rate with settings? Been checking game-debate and almost all frame rates are still for the Beta expect those with 3x more expensive GPUs.
