PSU is not a problem though, i can go for a 550w new supply. can GTX 460 based cards, or ATI Radeon 6850 cards handle my motherboard [DG35EC intel]?

The gt 220 is a low end card that wont be able to do that much, maybe play some games on the lowest settings and playback media fine but thats it, it is quite below a 9800gt a gts 250 is on par with a 9800gt btw.

I cant stress this enougth, it is important to have a good quality power supply, not a cheap one, there is significantly more you need to know psu than just the wattage, for example how many amps are available on the 12v rail (low amps means you can really put any half decent gpu on there at all) a cheap bad psu can blow out your entire system due to low quality parts not regulating the power properly, I strongly recoommend you buy a good psu first and if needed wait until you have enough cash for a gpu.

Brands like seasonic, antec, corsair are all excellent.

Make sure your PSU has the necessary AMPs on the 12v rail to run your card...it's not just about watts...the brands mentioned above are all good PSU's and well worth the investment.
Why would you buy a 220? thats a low end card now days...buy a 460/6850...Crysis 2 is released in a few days so if thats what this upgrade is for I'd sort of wait a little just to find out from ppl that buy and install the game to start posting on how it's running on there hardware. I think a 220 is going to struggle to run it at any sort of decent settings..remains to be seen tho.
cheers

You will need 2 x6 pin connectors tho
Only 1-6pin for the 6850. 2 for the 6870.

which ever way you go, certainly do a full clean sweep of your current graphics drivers before installing the new card and it's related drivers.
