29er vs. 26

I'm a roadie, but am interested in doing cross country riding.  My budget is around $600.  I am torn between a 26" hardtail and a 29" hardtail.  I would like to have front suspension and at least mid-level components?  What brands and/or components would you suggest and on what size and why?

    I ride a 29er and love it! I am tall so it's more proportional to my size.

    That said, 29er specific parts like wheels, tires, and fork are all much more pricey than 26". In my opinion at a lower price range I would prefer to put that $ into a 26" with better components
