Fork advise

I am trying to build from the ground up Specialized S- Works Enduro ( 2004 modle year) frame .
My budjet for the font fork is around 450 - 500 $ . I hear that alot of peeps cant stand the Fox Float shocks , and recomend Rock Shocks Revelation forks . What do you all think ?
The other Q i have is i heard that the frame is built around a 80 - 120 mm suspention fork ,so a 140 mm is out of the Q ?

I need help big time .

Also what recomendations do you all have for the rear shock , because if that frame can only support a rear shock with 4 inch travel , im thinking that a 120 mm front fork will do .
