Default how is this build?

I got around 700 to spend, my specs are 512 ram, 5200 geforce and a crap mobo/processor.

I was thinking

8800 gt - 380
e6750 230
mobo 100

but then i will still have bad ram.. any suggestions?

You can go AMD if you wanna spare some bucks and still have a decent computer. They make nice processors.
