The 430 is a good cheap card, with direct x 11 - it should run STO okay. Before you go and buy anything it would be worth considering any additional power requirements as well as overall compatibility with the rest of your system. (Although swapping one nvidia for another usually works). For example, a lot of people don't consider if their card will actually fit inside their computer when seated in the motherboard.
But all this might be overcomplicating your purchase too. Its not a difficult area to gain some familiarity in. I gained most of my info on the topic by dismantling my computers and seeing what goes where and why ^^
