Will this CPU work with the motherboard i want?

The motherboard i want to buy is http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Computer-Motherboards-Z87-G43-GAMING/dp/B00EWGSGVI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1393209394&sr=8-2&keywords=gaming+motherboard

And the processor i want to buy aswell is http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i3-4130-FCLGA-Processor-BX80646I34130/dp/B00EUUKVXM/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1393212472&sr=8-7&keywords=4th+gen+intel+processor

Now the motherboard i have is a BQ480AAR-ABA manufactured by HP
and the processor is an AMD Athlon II X4 635 Will the two items i am buying going to be better then the ones i have currently? I want to play games like Arma 3, and DayZ Standalone which i know are heavy CPU based. The main question is will these two items i am going to possibly buy compatible with each other and will they work efficiently? I think i have a 300w power supply and my graphics card is a GeForce GTX 660 SUPERCLOCKED, I also would like to know if the two items will keep this graphics card cool. Thank you for all the help if i can get any

    That was for bottleneck of your Video Card..
    300W won't be recommended in any case. Go for 450W
    The link you put was a fourth generation i3, if you are buying the products from the two links you posted, then you are golden..
