Need new monitor - is this a good buy?

I need a new monitor for my desktop pc, currently running on XP, used by myself for word processing, browsing the net etc, used by my sons for online gaming, facebook and occasionally homework...

Son1 has found this on Amazon: Samsung B1930N 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor (High Gloss Black) for £75.10, I haven't shopped around yet to see if I can get if for cheaper.

My first concern is that the specs on Amazon say it works with Vista - will it work with the XP I'm currently running, and will it work with Windows 7 if I upgrade to that?

The answers to the two questions in your last paragraph are yes, and yes.

The monitor has been generally well-reviewed, but your sons should be aware that at this price-point you aren't going to get top of the range response times for gaming.
