Worth or not is your decision to make, we can't help on this.
Can the mechanic assure you that this amount would be all you need to pay to solve the problem or it is only for replacing the gasket?
Overheating that can result in head gasket failure are mainly due to lack of coolant in cooling system due to leaks from components such as water pump, hoses, radiator, heater core etc. If the cooling fans are not working correctly, overheating would occur.
All cooling system components have to be checked and tested, replaced if necessary.
