the stock PSU will run the AMD 6670. the corsair CX series linked above are fine budget PSU if you are looking for more power for future upgrades.

Seeing as 6670 consume a maximum of 43W, I don't think that you need to upgrade your PSU to be able to use that graphics card.

The GPU just needs a PCIe x16 slot, which your motherboard has, so it will be compatible.

Your motherboard also looks like it has the standard power connectors, and is a standard size so you could buy any PSU which fits in your case.
Unless you open the case and measure how much space there is for the PSU then you'll have to stick to a PSU that is 140mm long.
