Which would run better for gaming,r7 370 2gb 256 bit or rx560 2gb 128 bit.R7 is 1000mhz,rx560 is 1300mhz. Also would it run most games on high-ultra if I went crossfire with R7?

neither graphics cards should have any issues with the games you have listed as long as you play at 1080p.
If you plan on playing newer games soon, I would suggest the RX 560, if you arent then pick the R7 370

I have looked and I can either get another R7 370 or a new RX560 for about the same price.The 560 is faster but 370 has twice the memory bandwidth (256 as opposed to 128)

R7 370 has similar performance as rx560. So its not worth the upgrade (its more like sidegrade).

Crossfire is not supported well (or at all) in many games, so it depends of what are you planning to play.
Its better to wait for now, because the cheapest gpu which worth the upgrade is rx580 or gtx 1060. And the prices are still high because of the miners.
