Have you checked out the YouTube channel KevCentral? He does a really good job breaking down affordable mountain bikes and also walks you through what cheap upgrades will make the riding experience more fun! Go check him out!

It really depends on the trails but I would recommend spending a bit more - your essentially buying a bike to beat up, you want it to be decent quality!

New, or used.

My Gary Fisher Cobia isn't beat up, and I plan on asking close to this price when I list it. It's not for anything very serious though.

And a modern full suspension bike will cost a grand+ for a nice used bike that's about five years old.
