manitou mahkor is a nice fork for under 300. rockshox recon is around 300. one thing you have to know is steerer. is your steerer 1 1/8 or tapered. you are limited to a few budget forks with 1 1/8 straight steerer.

ok there are more than one thing. steerer type travel of current fork wheel size brake type and dropout type width. for example i have a 100mm travel 29er fork with disk brakes straight steerer and 9mm QR 100mm axle. higher end bikes will have more travel 10mm 110 boost axle and tapered steerer. only thing that you can change is travel, but dont do much more or less in travel than what you have because it changes geometry of the frame.
