The first question is whether the furnace and parts are still covered by the warranty? Some of these have lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger and limited 10 year warranty on parts. For more you can go here: http://www.ruud.com/products/heating_and_cooling/gas_furnaces/.
The second is how old is the furnace? If the furnace is nearing the end of its lifespan it may be a better idea to look at getting a new furnace rather than replace the blower.
There is also the issue of weather it is the control board or the motor. These can affect the cost as well. And then there is the cost for labor. One estimate I found said about $350 total, but I would not rely too heavily on that number.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
