I have this computer:

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.

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.
