    There are undoubtedly a ton of bikes to choose from. All I can speak to is what I own. I have a 03' Specialized Enduro base model. It set me back about $1300. It has been the best all around bike I have ever owned. It is really comfortable for both trail and pavement. I spend time riding places like Annadel state park (pretty rocky & technical with some smoother downhill stuff) and it has been more than adequate for me. (I'm about 190 lbs with gear on) I'm sure that if you are going to seriously race you will need more bike and if you want to focus on DH you will need more travel and double crown forks; but if you can only have one bike (like me) this one will do just about everything pretty well.
    IMHO and just my $00.02
    happy trails and TGIF

    Why don't you go to your local bike shops, find one you like and then see which of their brands fits you the best (a good LBS will make the bike fit you, not you to the bike)? It sounds like you may not be ready to go it alone and do it all through the Internet, might need a friend at the LBS. Most non-boutique brands have something in that price range, so focus on fit.
