I'm buying a Moka Pot soon and I was wondering if it would be worth buying a Bartza Encore. At the moment I have a crappy $10 grinder and I'm not sure whether to save up a bit more and buy a Preciso ($330 in Australia) or get the Encore which is half the price.

If all you are going to be grinding for is your Moka Pot (and filtered pour over).   The Encore should be fine.

The Preciso has larger burrs and is more consistent but I am not sure you would "taste" and "see" a difference in your cup between the two grinders using a Moka pot or any filtered pour over brew method.

BUT....

If you are considering the larger/nicer grinder you will probably have it longer as you will be more satisfied (in your mind) to get the better of the two options which will save you money in the long run (i.e. you won't be looking to upgrade in the near or distant future).

Thanks for that, I will only be using it for a Moka Pot.
I decided to get a burr hand grinder that was about $60 in the meantime that got quite good reviews, and will just save up and get a higher quality grinder in the future.

Just for your information, some manual grinders are better with espresso than coarser grinds, and vice versa.
Let us know how you like your manual grinder/Moka Pot combo.
