Best Deal on a frame

What would be the best recommendation for upgrading my frame?

Brand new 2006 Fetish Cycles D&S (7005 Aluminum, 3.0lbs) Approx. $250?
1999-2001 Trek 8500, pre ZR9000 (T6 6013 Aluminum, 3.5lbs) Approx. $200?
1999-2002 GT XTC (Giant propriety aluminum, 3.1lbs) Approx $175?

I'm steering toward the D&S (I have the Discipline - very nice, though heavy frame for XC racing), since it will accomodate all of my current XT gear anyway. The other two would require new BB, seatpost, front derailleur.

Thanks

I think you should have posted this in "Mountain Biking".

You're proabably right. Can I get an admin to move it?
