Of course the GTS will support Crysis. It's just that the GTX will provide smoother gameplay on higher resolutions and settings, than the GTS.

Nice choice man. For a full tower case, I'd suggest a Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570 or the original. But it's more of a personal preference. The Antec Nine Hundred is an awesome mid-tower though. Theres the CM-Stacker which is a huge full tower.

The NZXT Zero is also a nice full sized case for the price.

Go for 640mg GPU, high resolution, and better performence, or you could go with the GTX version, up to you.
