ive posted on here about a couple bikes now and i found another one i like. it is a jamis trail x2 for $200. it was new as of december 2012. from what a quick google search came up with is that the fork is crap and the tires and wheels are really heavy. with my budget being about 400 that would give me a good amount of money to spend on upgrades. is the bike itself worth the investment? and if so what upgrades should come first?

i know i want a set of wtb velociraptors. the rims i have no idea what is good and cheap, and i just need to find a good deal on a fork like a rock shox recon, marzochi bommber or in my wildest dreams a fox float. what can you guys reccomend?
