I need a new mattress. I'm looking at memory foam and would like to keep the costs down to $500-600. What is the winner?

My current mattress is an inner-spring, and it is shot. There's no saving it. My parents bought a Swiss Lux off of Overstock.com, and claim they love it. I've seen mixed reviews on their longevity, and I'm curious to see what the hive mind says about what's best. My budget is limited to $600 max, and I'd like to come in under $500 if possible. FWIW, I'm a fairly cold sleeper, and a stomach sleeper. I tend to prefer somewhere in the firm range. I do have a memory foam pillow top on my current bed, so I can slap that on top of anything I buy as well. Should I go with latex or memory foam? I have a box spring that is in good shape as well. And lastly, I'm looking for a queen size.
Some options I've looked at thus far:
- Swiss Lux. I've seen mixed reviews on how long they last, and so that makes me a bit iffy.
- Body-pedic. Another Overstock brand. Some seem to report they are meh.
- Ikea. I've got an Ikea under 5 miles away, but I've heard mixed reviews on their overall quality.
What have you slept on? Are there any particular winners within my budget?
