Cry Like A Baby New gearbox Needed :(

Just had a report back from the garage about my bella after 10 months of relatively stress free motoring, i took my bella in to the garage reporting a scraping sound going into 3rd gear. the diagnosis was it was probably the synchro, but they would know more when they opened the gearbox. Found out today that the person who had the car before me had some work done on the gearbox and had not had it put back together properly. so over those 25k miles ive done, the gears have been bashing against each other, the mechanic said hed never seen so much metal inside a gearbox before
anyway, it needs a reconned gearbox, and whilst its off im going to get a new clutch put in aswell, ive been quoted 2200 for the whole job, including parts adn labour, is this a good price?
