A10 7700K crossfire compatibility

I have a A10 7700K processor and i want to make a crossfire with r7 250 or if its compatible 250x. I know the recommended gpu for 7700K is r7 240 but i saw systems that run r7 250. And i was wondering is it possiple to crossfire with r7 250x?

No, only the 250. You're better off disabling the IGP and spending the very little extra money on a 260 and you will have higher performance than a Dual Graphics setup.

And what do you think about buying an r7 260x and disabling the onboard graphics? Would it bottleneck? By the way my PSU is 500W.

It wouldn't bottleneck, and "my PSU is 500w" is about as helpful as blowing on a house fire, as it could mean anything from a $10 Chinese Firecracker which couldn't manage 300w to a high end quality unit. The 260x can pull a meager 125w with mild overclocking, so unless you do have one of those ticking timebombs, you'll be fine.

This is my psu specs. Can you tell me is it enough?

NO. See how +12v is only rated at 360w peak? Means you effectively have a 360w PSU (basically in a modern system USB is the only thing which uses 5v, PCI and minor PCIe for 3.3v). That's a recipe for disaster if you use a 260X.
