You can buy within your price range from KEH http://www.keh.com/Camera/format-Digital/system-Canon-Digital/category-Camera-Bodies?s=1&bcode=DC&cc... I have not used them. My brother in law has and is very happy with the camera and lens he got. He also added a 2 year warranty on his stuff for around $50.
Good luck finding a used 70d.
I am in the same boat as you and will probably go for a 7d.
