If its a good power supply, its worth keeping. If not, then we may as well get rid of it.

The 520 is a nice card to put in like HTPC builds, but not at all for gaming.

Cheaper than the 670 would drop you in the GTX570 and HD7850 territory. Those run at around $250 or somewhere.

The HD6950 is a good card at the $200 price point right now.

+1 to 7850 if the PSU is of good brand but if not, better upgrade the PSU along with the GPU but it will means cutting in terms of GPU:
Here is a GPU+PSU option for $230 but only $190 after Mail In Rebate:
