Default need Help designing

ok, I am a little tight on money right now, so i have decided to build a comp that has all the good parts for high-end gaming, like joint ops, battlefield 2 any massive multiplayer games. I want a 6800 gt with 256 mb, but i think i will wait and get all the other necessities, but a cheap video card at first, until the new generation nvidia comes out. can someone please help me pick out my build? my budget is between 4-700 without the 6800

AMD64 Venice 3000+
DFI lanparty ultra-d
1 gig of twinmos ram
80 gig SATA HDD
OCZ Modstream 520W
Case
NEC 3510A dvd-rw

should be able to fit your budget as long as you don't choose an expensive case (probably anthing around 70 or under...dunno the exact price, i just did a quick guesstimate)
