Hello and welcome to geekstogo.
Yes you could run Crysis fine, if you told me the resolution of your monitor I'd be able to give you a rough estimate of what settings you could play at with playable frame rates (avg ~30FPS).

With that, you can play crysis like a breeze, but i suggest that you should get a 768 MB graphics card.

The are to many factors to ever state such as thing. That is a huge generalization and RAM will only make a card better if you play at higher resolutions. Also there is only one GPU with 768MB of RAM specifically, of which I would not suggest.

No card can play Crysis "like a breeze" on Very High at 1920x1080. Playability all depends on the settings and resolutions that are being used.

Again the amount of RAM doesn't mean squat. Also, no 3 way SLI will not play Crysis at a high resolution, high settings with full AA and AF.
3 way SLI scales terribly from what I have seen and considering no game really has any support for it, so why would you assume otherwise? Not to mention the huge CPU bottleneck that exists.
