Would it be better to get a head gasket replacement or a used engine?

(2004 Kia Spectra)
in Escondido, CA on August 07, 2015
I have a 2004 Kia Spectra that needs a head gasket replacement. It's my first car (used) and I'm confused on what to do. Any advice is appreciated. I had the alternator drive belts replaced, then the head gasket problem came into place.
