Shame you could of upgraded to a GTX560ti, it would be a great upgrade if you are wishing to stay with nvidia.

imo your psu could use an upgrade e.g. antec neo eco 520c or corsair builder cx v2 500w or seasonic m12ii 620w.
gt430 is decent for htpc.
what do you use your pc for? if it's gaming, getting a higher end gfx card would vastly improve gaming experience. check out this gfx card hierarchy chart from tom's:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...
even a radeon hd 5770/6770 would be a good upgrade from the gt 430.
if you want to stick with nvidia, the lowest one to go for would be gtx 560 non ti. nvidia doesn't have cards under gtx 560 that perform well for their price. radeon hd 6870 performs similarly to gtx 560 and uses less power on load.

for $70 you'd be looking at the 6670.

the PSU has 30 amps across its two 12v rails. That's good enough for up to a HD 6780 or GTX 560ti with some safety margin.

sorry, didn't ask your gaming res. when you mentioned gtx 560, i thought that you play at 1080p resolution.
depends on your location. you won't find good gaming cards for $70.
according to newegg, radeon hd 6570 1gb fits your budget and radeon hd 6670 1gb, with a little more. both should be fine for 1024x768 resolution.
if you run any of these cards and not put much load on your system, the 6570 and 6670 should run okay. it'll come down to how old the psu is as components age, they lose their effectiveness.

1 gb gddr5 is better for gaming.
6670 is better than a gt 440.
it's like this: gt440 (gddr5) < 5570 (gddr5) < 6570 < 5670 (gddr5) < 6670 (gddr5) (gaming performance)
the review below has 1024x768 benchmarks and comparison among 5570, gt 440 and 6670.
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_6670/1...
if the gt 440 and 6670 are similar in price, 6670 is preferable for it's better performance. just avoid cards with 2 gb vram. extra vram is wasted on these gpus.
