Need some advice asap!

I have a schwinn mesa gs and i am going to update the front fork tomorrow....i have found 2 possible candidates for the replacement and i want some advice on which one i should purchase. I have been eyeing a rock shox recon silver tk from performance bikes it has a 120mm travel and is 4.3lbs and is priced at 200...i have also been looking at a rock shox tora trail 302 coil u turn from rei for $240 which has a 130mm or 85mm...im new to the suspension shopping world as my rock shox jett shock that was on here is awesome but a little outdated so any help would be appreciated! Also im not looking to buy anything online thats why im kinda limited on what i buy. Thanks in advance!

The Tora can be found cheaper than that. I've seen them in the $200 range with the 289 in the $150 range.
