Should i change this frame?

Hi there. Well, i thought of changing my current road bicyle frame to a year 2002 model of Specialized E5 frame. (http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCBkM...6dwekda.j27004) But i dont think it is an original frame though. Quite heavy but i couldnt get the real weight. FYI, im using Motiv Versato R frame. I know that most of the people havent heard of it before. But the weight between these 2 frames doesnt differ much. I thought maybe i can get more comfort with this specialized frame. Although it isnt original, i guess the geometry should be correct. Please advice. Thanks!!

it all depends how much the frame costs. you can purchase used frames for pretty cheap if you keep your eyes open. for instance, you could buy the 2000 sworks frame by specialized for about 500 maybe less and thats new. so there are loads of options. how much does this frame sell for?
