A good 650W unit is fine for R9 270X Crossfire, however I've never even heard of Bitmore and I'm fairly knowledgeable about PSUs, so I'm inclined to say it's a piece of junk, so you should replace it with something reputable.

Though there are diamonds in the rough I would listen to him. The PSU is what pulls everything together or it could take down your whole system. So I would try and get maybe Corsair and go 700 or 750 if you ever decide to upgrade and crossfire at the same time or even SLIP if you switch to NVIDIA. Never hurts to be safe!

That's no better. That one I'm familiar with, and it's definitely not good.
