The motherboard i want to buy is http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Computer-Motherboards-Z87-G43...

And the processor i want to buy aswell is http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i3-4130-FCLGA-Processor-BX8...

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 my graphics card will bottleneck with the items i want to buy? My budget is $350 but i want to save $80 to get DayZ and Arma 3

They are compatible. Might want to update the PSU.
BTW the links are broken.

Yes they are compatible. Yes they are better than you what you currently have. For $350 you could very easily get an i5 with that MSI Z87 mobo. You won't be able to overclock that i3. If overclocking is not important, you could get a cheaper mobo.

and yes you almost certainly need a better more powerful power supply.

what motherboard and psu would you recommend and what will happen if i try to play games with a small power supply not large enough to support the GPU i have? And no i don't want to overclock. I don't know enough about it to worry
