Default I need help picking out a motherboard and a new cpu if necessary

I basically want to attempt to run battlefield 4 when it comes out and yes i said attempt, ill probably need more upgrades to achieve that. My range is around $300-$450 or so. I don't know much about overclocking but i might be willing to try it if someone walks me through it "thoroughly"

Current system
Picture of mother board-http://postimage.org/image/k3c4ryfdn/db408f9b/
Processor-AMD Athlon(tm)II x4 630 2.80 GHz
RAM-4.00 GB
Power supply-ATX-TL450W 20+4Pin +12v rails=2
Graphics card-Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit
operating system-windows 7 64-bit

My graphics card isn't installed yet because of the power supply.

For the psu im probably going to get a Seasonic M12II 520 bronze 520W ATX12v
Help would be greatly appreciated

So far there is no word of Battlefield 4 making an appearance any time soon. If EA is smart they will spread it out like they did 2 and 3. BF4 beta access was only an attempt to make people buy the **** called Medal of Honor Warfighter. I'm afraid at this time if you buy anything it would probably need to be a pair of 680s and a 3770k to be on the safe side, but that is only a guess from a guess that we wont see BF4 for another 4 or so years.

Just keep saving some money for it until the day it comes out, by that day you will be able to buy one monster machine I'd assume.
AMD Phenom x4 965BE@4Ghz /SLI GTX 260 / TPower N750 / 5GB
