It might be or might not be enough... We can't tell you the answer.

But I do think it'll run Crysis fine, maybe even fully maxed out.

Although the harddrive wouldn't do much for gaming, get a SATA one. Like this:

It's what I have and it's pretty good.

As for the power supply, 34 amps on the +12v rails is not enough to power two x2000 cards. You need a more powerful one to do the task, something like this:

Put in mind though, Crysis isn't out yet, so there is no way you can know if what is enough to run it smoothly. From I see though, I'm guessing it should run good. I would get a Core 2 Duo system though, since you can overclock it greatly and should give you better performance. (E6600 should be around X2 6000 price by April 22)

I'd use two 8800GTXs as a reference for the amount of power needed for 2900XTs in Crossfire.
