Default Motherboard advice

Need help deciding on what MB to get for either my Phenom II X4 955 or 965.

I was looking at this but unsure, if you guys can recommend any better ones it would be appreciated. - ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

and will this RAM work? - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ

Also PSU wise 650 or 750?
