1440p monitor help

I don't know a lot about monitors so I need some help. I am getting an R9 290 to play games at 1440p, so if I buy the R9 290, a PSU and a 1440p monitor its a lot of money. So I found a cheapish one on Newegg and just want to ask if its even to consider. I currently have a 5ms 60hz 1080p monitor so I don't think I'd see a difference in refresh/response time. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4JH1GM6834
Thanks!

    Don't buy that cheap monitor:

    *This monitor may contain up to 3~5 dead pixels, if you want no dead pixel,
    Please order perfect pixel model"

    If I were you, I would upgrade GPU and PSU, and wait for the ASUS ROG Swift 1440p 120hz monitor coming out soon. I'm not sure what the price will be like though. One thing I will say though is don't cheap out on a monitor. You will be using it longer than the video card.

    I'd agree with Kekoh on this. Your monitor will likely outlast your PC and of all your PC parts, it is the one you will have the most interaction with. You can use it on your next PC and there is nothing worse than multiple dead or stuck pixels to stare at all day/night.
