Default Cheap monitor on newegg... Should i shy away or buy?

I found a really nice looking monitor for cheap and am thinking about picking it up. I only have a 17 inch crt monitor as of now.

Hmm its ok but I suggest this moniter

instead, its $20 cheaper with a mail in rebate.

and it is 700:1 instead of the 500:1 you are looking at.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
