If you guys had around $500 to buy the best possible combo of Motherboard+CPU+Memory What would you get? And also just Motherboard+CPU (Since i have 2x 8gb DDR3 memory almost new)? Thanks in advance¡!¡

Best? Best performance on single core? Best performance on multi core? Best price/performance ratio? Best overclocking ability? Best (you name it)?

You basically have following choices:

AMD FX-8320/8320E/8350

- Excellent price/performance ratio
- Good multi core but quite weak single core
- Uses obsolete CPU socket

Intel i5-6600K

- Expensive
- Excellent single core
- OK multi core
- Can overclock
- Uses obsolete CPU socket

Intel i7-4790K

- Very Expensive
- Excellent single core
- Good multi core
- Can overclock
- Uses obsolete CPU socket

Xeon 1231 v3

Like i7-4790K but bit slower cannot overclock

I would say that if you go on Intel route, it's wiser option not to use that DDR3 and pick up DDR4 platform instead.
