My system now:
1. Corsair TX650 PSU
2. ASUS M5A88-M Motherboard
3. AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE
4. Corsair XMS3 2x4GB
5. Western Digital 500GB HDD
6. Seagate 2TB HDD

I want to buy a graphic card and i got lost. i see so many specifications, such as memory size, memory type, memory bus, etc... In the games part i see FPS (i know what it is), resolution, etc...

I want to know what is the most important part to look at. For example: 2GB 128bit vs 1GB 256GB...

My goal is to play BF3 in ultra mode with resolution of not more than 1080p lines. My other goal is cost... :) 
The next step will be upgrading to SSD, but it's not important now...

Thanks in advance!

you should get a radeon 7870 for best results. It will be able to play bf3 on ultra too.
Memory bus i.e 128bit/256bit and memory amount is important for higher resolution gaming. For 1080p a 192bit bus is the minimum I would aim for although a 256bit bus will be much better.

I have a Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 and it's played every game I throw at it at the highest settings. Haven't tried BF3, but it handles Skyrim and Arkham City just fine.
