Yeah, that sounds about right, maybe $650-750. There's no Kelly Blue Book for bikes unfortunately so its hard to say. I say throw it up on eBay...you'll basically get the price that others are willing to pay for it, or you can put it on craigslist at a touch higher than you expect and see what people offer you.
Make sure you use tons of pictures and details about the bike. Size is most important. Also give it a good cleaning and tuning if potential buyers come to look at it. When was the last time it had shock/fork rebuild/maintenance? That would be the first thing I would ask about if I was shopping for a used full suspension. Also, when was the last time the brakes were bled? How far along are the chain/cassette in their lifespan?
