I would try to save a little more and go with the Cannondale Prophet 600. I saw that you like downhill and XC on your bio. The prophet will come with a lifetime warranty on the frame and it can take more abuse than a XC bike, but is light enought to take it up hills. The lefty fork rocks too.
I am the same size as you and I am also looking at getting a new full suspension. I am going to save up and go for the Prophet 600 ($1599) or the 800 ($1999). Heard nothing but good stuff about it in reviews and that is where I think I am going to put my money. Check here: http://www.nsmb.com/gear/cannondale_prophet_09_04.php
