Hi I have this computer:

It has a 300w supply and I'm looking to run battlefield 3 with like 60 fps on medium/high? Please help!

The 7750 is your best bet. But you will not run battlefield 3 at 60fps, at least not at 1080p.

It's cool, I'm not looking for ultra settings lol. If it can do battlefield 3 60 fps at medium then I'm happy!
Edit: My resolution is 1980 x 1020 and I run bf3 at low settings with like 10 fps.. IT HURTSSs

A 7750 may get you up around Medium, but not a 60 fps, if you put a decent power supply in there, and get a 7790 or higher (or nvidia equivalent) you should be good to go....though it depends on what resolution you're playing at.

Edit: just saw your resolution, you'll need a PSU upgrade and something a little beefier than a 7750 to hit 60+ on med/high

You will run it on low with around 40fps with the 7750.

7850 will run at 55ish on high at full 1080, so definitely 60+ on medium, i'd guess the 7790 will hit 60 on medium no problem

So I should be looking at atleast 400 watt supply and 7790 for medium 60 fps/high 40ish fps?

If you're think 7790, its a good choice. This card will give you the most bang for your buck. However, a
500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended.
