The question is simple-What Motherboard would fit:
-AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz
and
- SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB
considering I want to use that kind of RAM
-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB
with that PSU
-Thermaltake TR2 W0379RU 500W

Thanks in advance :)

Any AM3 socket motherboard. I will though suggest AMD 8xx chipset series board to get the newest technology. There are different features to be selected on the different boards but here is one that is a good buy at the moment http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
If you have not bought that PSU yet then I suggest swapping it for a similar size Antec, Corsair or Seasonic!

I SECOND THAT: Too many people under estimate the importance of a strong, quality power supply. Choose one from Corsair, Antec TP, or Seasonic...

650watts will work for any SINGLE GPU system.
850Watts will work for all but the highest end DUAL GPU systems.

I listed BOTH to make you aware that while you can do a single ATI or NVidia in ANY MB. The same is Not true for dual cards:

This motherboard for Nvidia, supports SLI in the future.....

This motherboard for AMD, supports Crossfire in the future.....

With that exact same processor and ram i used the following motherboard and PSU in my rig

Of course the MOBO is out of stock ATM but I am happy with those purchases, and am running dual 5770's in crossfire without issues with these items
This motherboard is pretty much exactly the same as the other I posted

This was my first AsRock mobo purchase and I am happy with it. Zero issues whatsoever. Hope that helps

Any mother board with an AM3 socket. I would recommend looking into one with USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0 gigabytes a second.
