You did say "card" not cards so sticking with single slot solutions

At what resolution ? The 295 averages 29 fps in Crysis warhead at 1920 x 1200 and 0AAF "Enthusiast" settings according to this test

So if you want 30, you have but one choice left , the 5970

Here's another more recent listing

5870 31.7 fps
295 GTX 32.8 fps
5970 44.9 fps

For Crysis yes. For about a £100 you could look into GTX260 HD4870/90 or HD5770 they will give you decent fps.

I would also consider the nvidia gtx 9800, i have many people i know who have said they can run almost any game on high settings, and easily run crysis on med settings.

Crysis is the most graphic intensive game in existence by a good margin. It is quite playable on medium settings without AA at reasonable resolution without spending a ton though. For £100 I would get this;

or for slightly more this;

For closer to the price of that other card you linked this is much better;

Yeah, knowing the resolution would be good but specifically for Crysis it doesn't matter as much. You need the most powerful card you can afford and if it doesn't cut it you'll have to lower the resolution and/or settings anyway.
