When you say you don't have much money and you were looking at the 70D, do you mean you can't afford it and are looking for alternatives?

If so, depending on your budget, you can probably get a used 7D for a reasonable price now that its successor is on the market.

The 60D doesn't shoot as many frames per second as the 70D or 7D but you can get them almost cheaply now and the AF is better than that of the 350D.

Even my old 550D did a very good job when I used the centre AF point - from a stills standpoint, I upgraded so I could get better consistency with the AF and more fps.

What kind of budget do you have in mind?

It may help if you tell us in what way(s) you find the 350D lacking. And also which lens(es) you currently have.

Generally speaking, upgrading the body can only achieve so much in terms of image quality if you're upgrading from one crop-sensor body to another. The biggest difference that you'd notice is image quality in lower-light conditions when you compare an older body to a newer one as the newer body should have reduced noise. You'll see a far more appreciable difference in image quality from upgrading the lens.

That's not to say there aren't "legitimate" reasons to upgrade the body but if image quality is what you consider to be lacking, upgrading your body alone probably won't be the best solution.
