I am assuming you're getting the R7 240 as it's compatible with the a8 7600 for Dual Graphics?
TBH it isn't really worth going for Dual Graphics, if you can afford a single, dedicated GPU (like the R9 series or maybe one of the new RX460/470/480 GPUs) you will see much improved performance.

My personal opinion.

I didn't know they did an R7 360 at 4Gb, don't you mean the R7 370 4Gb?
Either way, an R7 360 2Gb DDR5 is more than enough and an R7 370 4Gb is plenty

You will struggle with the R7 240, I wouldn't recommend it unless you are really limited budget-wise (you will be disappointed, though, if you do get it).

So R7 360 2Gb DDR5 or higher, you are good to go.

Last point, if you want to compare different cards, visit this link, scroll down and use the drop-down boxes to choose your desired specs - you will clearly see the R7240 has a 3/10 score, Vs the R7 360 with a 6/10 (anything above 5/10 and you're good to go).

Play around with the different options and GPUs, find one that you feel comfortable with, but avoid the R7 240 (LinusTechTips on Youtube will also confirm this, with an episode/rant about low-end cards).

Happy gaming!

Not a bad choice at all, for the set up you have - purists will probably tell you to buy a whole new PC but for what you have, only bottleneck I can see would be the A8-7600
BTW are you sure it isn't a CPU with a 'K' at the end?
If it is, you could boost your CPU performance with a bit of overclocking.
My A8-7650K went from 3.3Ghz -> 4.2Ghz stable...
consider consulting Toms Hardware before your next build ;)

And again, happy gaming!
