So im looking to upgrade my gpu temporarily to an r9 390x and this means i need a new psu i was wandering if a 700w psu 80+ certified is enough for it or would i need more wattage like a 750w psu?

It depends on the rest of your parts, which you didn't list, and the quality of the model power supply you intend to use, which you also didn't list.

A high quality 650-750 watt PSU is enough for a 390X, but the Aerocool model you have is terrible quality, made from cheap parts and has poor performance so I do not recommend using it with a 390x video card.
What about a Cooler Master MWE White 700 v2 Power Supply would that be good?
Edit: its a 700w psu if that wasn't obvious.
