i have 350 upgrading parts next year (help)

hi
i have 350 to spend so i wanna know what i shoud go for. i used to have a small crappy falcon with fs but decided i would get more interested in riding bikes. i will use my bike 50% riding around the streets and i want to be able to go quite quick. i will use it 40% on self made 5 foot ramps around in a field and 10% use on huge dirt track by my house.
it says the bike i have is gt avalanche 3.0 but i dont have it yet that was just wat i was thinking of getting with =s cable =s disc brakes for 350 then maybe upgrade parts next year anyone got any more ideas on what bike i should get. what i could upgrade. any tips for a newbie basically take 5 mins of ur time to help someone like me

You want to upgrade a bike you don't have yet? I would say ride it for a little while and see what you don't like and go from there.
