Hi Aero A95 if you were to purchase the computer in your link you would
have to do some serious hardware upgrades before playing crysis.
I know you are only asking for information on the pci-e bus version but
I have found you some more info on the computer itself which shows why it
is only $299 & I wouldn`t want you to spend your money only to be very
disappointed with the purchase.
As a point of note if you put a 2.0 version card in a version 1.0 slot it
would simply back clock to 1.0.

Some important system requirements for playing crysis are where it falls down;
CPU=P4@2.8 or 3.2 for Vista, dual core 2.0 or 2.2 for Vista, AMD Athlon 2800+ or 3200+ for Vista
Crysis will not run on an integrated graphics chip & requires a GeForce 6800 GT or greater or an
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro or an X800 for Vista as examples, card must be 256mb or greater.
The computer also only has a 250W psu.
