Today, I went to a store that had ordered an Asrock B450M PRO4 motherboard that will come October 27th and am intending to upgrade from my Hp Pavilion P7 1227c. Will this work?

Here's the Motherboard in question:

HP cases and power supplies are not known for being "industry standard". The pictures I find, look reasonable. The included motherboard only has a 4 pin supplemental CPU power plug. Your new one has an 8 pin. That means you really need a power supply also.
And your new motherboad uses different RAM than your existing one.
Your existing Windows install probably won't boot.
You have a lot of work ahead.
