Need a Good XC/Downhill FORK!!!!!!

Hey guys

i have a judy c fork on my GT hardtail and want to upgrade.

im looking for a good 120-130mm fork. Im prety light weight
(125LBS)

I was considering buying a marzocchi z1 MCR or Z2, rock shox Psylo SL or 2002 DUKE 100, or a manitou x-vert supernova.

I would be willing to spend the additonal money if the fork was really good, but want to keep cost down as much as possible.

Any help would be great!!!!!

I would not put more than a 100mm fork on that bike.
It will slacken your headtube angle and add alot of stress to your frame, possibly causing failure.
