Wanting to upgrade cx fork

I am looking to upgrade the fork on my fuji cross bike. The factory fork is very heavy and has a chromoly steerer. What would be a good reasonably priced fork to go with. I was looking at nashbars cross fork but am not sure how good it is. Any advice would be appreciated!

I doubt anything "reasonably priced," is going to be any better or lighter than your stock fork. If it were me, I'd watch ebay for a used Ritchey WCS fork.

Carver fork from Bikeman.

Add in the cost of a V-brake and travel agent.

Nashbar fork is supposed to be the same as a winwood dusty. Will probably improve the ride but not save much weight.

Well I ended up finding a mint condition cx20 fork off craigslist for 110.00. Its full carbon and seemed like a good deal, how would this compare to other forks? I know its late to be asking since I bought it already, but it seemed to get decent reviews.

The CX20 is highly regarded.
