Go to your local bike shop and take a look at the bikes they have, and ask them what a good bike for dirt jump/street would be.

in the shop i saw , specialized hardrock sport and mondraker play 2 and play 3, i was watching the specialized p2 but than i saw the price :S What u think about those specialized and mondraker ?
700 euros is about 900 us dollars, ideally that would get you a Rockhopper Comp Disc, sadly, bikes (that come from the US) are more expensive in Europe, about 50% more expensive, still, 700 euros should still be able to get you a Hardrock Comp Disc with some haggling.
I don't know about Mondraker bikes but a Hardrock Comp Disc would be a great bike for your needs.

Any of the Iron Horse Yakuza bikes are perfect for all around freeriding. Not sure if they will ship to you, but Performance has some great prices right now:

ok ! thnx :D i think ill decide betwin rockhopper comp and hardrock , but there are 2 more possibilties... like mondraker play2 or play3, and one of the scott's voltage yz... what u guys think ?

but i cant stop thinking in the specialized p2, i can do everything with that bike and the bike is so cool, i think it worth the money, i can do street, dirt.. a little mountain :D
Kona Cinder Cone would be perfect - not sure it its it your price range but it can't be far off :)
