Does anyone know which GPU could I use for a crossfire? I just presume I could use another R9 200, but I can't find one anymore... Thanks a lot!
Processor: AMD-FX 8320
Motherboard: Gigabyte 970A-UD3P

what GPU did you exactly have? but going with CF is more or less useless right now. AMD no longer supports crossfire in their driver for over a year now.
I have a Radeon R9 200 series, but I' don't know the exact model. I thought I could go with a crossfire, but if you think it's not the way, I'll just buy another GPU. Do you have any suggestion for a budget of 200$ - 250$? Thank you

R9 200 is just a series, with a bunch of GPUs. It's like buying a "2020 Honda Civic," there are a lot of flavors from the base model to the hot hatch version that costs nearly twice as much.

Crossfire/SLI are effectively dead for gaming, so don't try it for this reason (you'd have to buy something used, these have been out of production for a very long time).

As for your other needs, it really depends on what you're using whether a CPU upgrade or a GPU upgrade would be preferable. If this is professional work, a Radeon Pro or a Quadro would be more appropriate than a consumer GPU.

hard to recommend anything when GPU market is quite a mess right now. even used market seeing price increase which is insane. for sub $250 honestly i don't know what to recommend. 1660 super? on AMD side they got RX5500 for $200 or so. although i did not know how fast it is compared to your old one since you did not know what card did you actually have.
