alp, both of the ones you have links to are crap. The best thing you can do is go to some of your local shops and look around and test ride some bikes. In your price range you should concentrate primarily on hardtails.

There is no reason to bump your threads after only 13 minutes.

If you want a nice fs bike in your price range start looking around at some used bikes. That would be your best bet.

Have you went by your local bike shop yet? That should be your first move. See if they have anything that interests you. Then get on here and ask some questions about those.
