best ds frame under $650?

I have a 07 rockhopper and I outgrew it and got a motobecane fantom comp and am pleased with performance in relation to the cost. So I was thinking... I thought it would be a fun summer project to disassemble my rockhopper and transfer the components to a new frame. I cut grass to fund my biking so budget is rather low. I was looking at the Jamis parker 1.0 http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...e+2008+Oe.aspx and thought it was cool because it can be used for more than xc since I LOVE drops and am rather adventerous and never know whats comming next. the price is very fair too. I also saw these http://bikeisland.com/cgi-bin/BKTK_S...ls&ProdID=1038 and http://bikeisland.com/cgi-bin/BKTK_S...ls&ProdID=1037 the first one is cool because its pretty cheap and the second is cool because the tora 302 blows away the dart and with the fork and headset already in, I wont have to have my lbs do that for me. I also found this http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...+Frame+07.aspx but it looks over kill since I will mostly be doing xc. this http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...rame+2008.aspx is a little over budget and doesnt look any better than the parker but that is why im asking you guys. http://www.performancebike.com/bikes...00_20000_51506 and http://www.performancebike.com/bikes...00_20000_51506 are right on budget and have better components than my rockhopper but then the building fun is gone and no rear shock lockout but idk if thats important. FEEL FREE TO SKIP EVERYTHING WRITTEN AND JUST POST SOMETHING GOOD FOR $650 OR UNDER!!!!!
