Which Mountain Bike?

I am looking for suggestions for a full suspension mountain bike (complete) with 4 bar suspension or basically multi-pivot points under 2000 dollars. or a frame under 500 dollars

ive been looking at the ellsworth epiphany but it is a bit expensive

thanks!

You can get a top of the line Specialized FSR XC for that money, or a mid range Stumpjumper, or any of the Giants with the Maestro suspension, namely the Trance or Reign. They're all great bikes with very good value for money and great reviews.

which one?
four-bar frames absorb more shock right? compared to single pivots like the heckler?
