For $70, about the best you'll do is a DDR3 version of the HD6670; there are lot of those. If you're willing to play the rebate game, and get lucky and win it, here's a GDDR5 version: for $70 (including shipping) after MIR.

I'm going to suggest that you look for a used video card from a company with a good warranty (EVGA, XFX etc). At 70$ you are never going to get a new card a gamer would call adequate but it is very possible you will find a used one. You picked a good time of year to be doing this, with the holiday season lots of people will be upgrading and will be looking to sell their old cards. If you are patient you can find a fantastic deal
