Default Good monitor?

I was wonering if this KDS 17 inch flat screen crt monitor is good. I am a newb when it comes to picking out good monitors so I will be needing sum help. I guess the monitor will be used for gaming,and normal desktop activitites. this KDS price is like 170 Canadian and is around 110-120 US. This is to the link. I need feedback,ideas and suggestions. Thx for all replies and help. . http://www.kdscanada.ca/2003/Xflat/xf7i.htm

P.S. This is the site where i can buy the monitors from. I cant go over 175-180 being w/o tax of course. http://www.pccanada.com/inventory.asp?cat=monitors . soo if u find ne better ones like that viewsonic black one...tell me. There is also this monitor if u can give sum feedback on it. http://www.viewsonic.com/products/crt_e70b.htm

well this monitor does seem fairly good in their site, but I see that it doesn't have 1600x1200 resolution - my 5 year old 17" monitor does - and at 1280x1024 it still only has 65HZ refresh rate.
the LG Flatron F700P is really good, and not too expensive.
has 1600x1200 @ 75HZ

its prolly better to get a 19" because they aren't much more than 17" but 21" have a really steep price increase.
