Yes you can. But your RAM is a bit low. And also let us know your processor and also your PSU and your monitor.

Brand of the PSU matters a lot. 350W is barely enough to power a good GPU. Standard is most of the time 450W. The PSU that you need should be determined when all other parts of the PC are finalized.

Go for Intel, they are a better option than the one's you are targeting.

Oh... then Phenoms X4 is better. 965BE is a good option for gaming. What is your budget and what parts do you intend to fit in them?

I got 100-120 euros maximum budget but if i could spend less, it would be perfect...I need a new processor and a graphics card, do you have any suggestions???

I am thinking about AMD Athlon II X3 455 3300 MHz and Gigabyte GeForce 220 OC 1GB

I think the 435, 455 or 720BE would be your best bet. I would prefer the 720BE.
For the card HD6670 should be the best option. Also the GTS450 (should stretch your budget a little though).

I am looking at prices from a dollars perspective, so see if the 720BE and the HD6670 fits your budget of 100-120 Euros.

Even then you wont be able to game hardcore on it though!

The GT220 is hardly card to do anything. Its best for FreeCell and Solitaire.

Final option is to wait and save and then get a mean one.

HD6670 is express 2.1, can I put it on my motherboard?? I don't play rpg game etc I want it only for nba 2k11 and pes2011, i think gt220 is perfect for me...

gt220 got Core Clock: 720 MHz. Mem Clock: 1600 MHz. Shader Clock: 1566 MHz

Do you think MSI GT520 MD1GD3 (LP) 1GB is better?

HD6670 review:

http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-6670-review/3

The card humps the GT240. So invariably it will hump the GT220. The ratings are useless coz the cards are almost 2-3 generations apart.

The GT520 is somewhat a counterpart of AMD's HD6450. And HD6670 2 levels up on it.

About the 2.1 thing... it should do just fine. But go through your motherboard manual for that.
