I have this computer:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03...

All the specs are located there. I would write them out for you but I don't know whats important.

I want to play games like Battlefield 3 on Ultra with steady 60FPS. I do have a i7 3770,12gb of ram, but a horrible GPU Radeon 5750.

Can you please help me find a good graphics card that's compatible with my system's motherboard etc. plus I have windows 8 so I don't know if that matters.

I was thinking about the 7850 or the 660, I've never opened a computer before but I have watched videos. Is it easy to replace the graphics card and for that card I think the power supply too?

I don't want to spend over 300 dollars in total.

So basicly you have 460w powersupply, and the new 660s suck not that much of power, this Graphics card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

well run anything you through at it on ultra steady 60fps in battlefield 3, it costs 310$ just add a little 10$ to your budget, you wont regret your buy

That may or may not work. You'd need to check and see how many PCI-e connectors your PSU has. If it only has one, that limits your options a bit. The 660Ti requires 2 6-pin PCI-e connectors, the 7850 only requires one.

This is the main reason why i think mainstream prebuilts is bad so limited because sooner or later its going to be a better option to just build one from scratch same thing happen to my old dell pc

That's... a REALLY weird prebuilt. Have you gone past the expiration date yet?

You'd be way better off with an i5 and 8GB of RAM (losing NO gaming performance) and spending that $100 on even more graphics power.

7850 is your best choice in this scenario
