Default New Monitor

I am not a new user at all, but I did not see anywhere to post a question about a monitor, so I decided i would post in here. My friend is seling a Sony CPD-E540 monitor. I am a very heavy gamer, I play Counter-Strike Source all the time. Right now i have a Viewsonic A90F+ 19" monitor. I really want to upgrade to the Sony 21" CPD-E540 Trinitron. I know someone that is selling it for 200, but will not let me borrow the monitor though. I did some looking up on it already, and i have read both good and bad reviews on it. Right now I run my resolution at 1600x1200, but if i got this monitor, i would really like to bump it up to 1920x1440. I am not sure how this monitor would be for gaming and the high resolution, but I would like to get everyones opinion out of this. Thanks very much.

Remember, bumping it up requires extra of everything on your computer's part. What are your computer specs and can they handle the extra strain?
