Can I run a dual monitor setup with my specs?

I know how to build and fix computers, I know a lot, but dual monitor setups are something I never really thought about. 

My specs are:

Gpu: AMD Rx 590 8gb

Mobo: MSI b450 gaming plus (This has two pci-e x 16)

Processor: Ryzen 7 2700x 8 core

Ram: 32gb ddr4

Monitor(s) is: https://www.amazon.com/Sceptre-Edge-Less-FreeSync-...    

Basically the important specs, my psu is a 550 to 600 watt, can't remember which one and I can't be bothered to take the side off my pc to check lmao. I was thinking of using Crossfire, but since my power supply isn't super high I wasn't sure about putting more pull on it. The one rx 590 has enough DP for a multi monitor setup, but only one hdmi, should I switch the hdmi I am using for my single monitor and use two dp or is it okay to use hdmi and dp? Should I use just the one 590 or should I use two and upgrade my psu?

    Yes, you can run dual monitors with the RX 590

    But..... will you get flickering issues with 2 monitors? IDK

    The infamous flickering issues affect VEGA and RDNA cards, but I don't know if they effect Polaris cards.

    Yes you can run dual monitor setup with your specs. You can use multiple monitors with any specs. You only need a HDMI port.

    Either HDMI and DP, or get 2 DP cables for 2 monitors. And try it.

    watts of a power supply does not mean very much.

    brand and model number say a lot about it.

    RX 590 Crossfire gets extremely variable results by game.

    Might sell it for $170 and buy an rx 5700 or rtx 2060 Super instead and keep the pwer supply if it's any good.

    Yes, it will run both of those monitors, but watch your resolution. Higher resolution on some games might cause drastic lower FPS. It's going to be all about game settings per game for optimal gameplay.
