Default Is this a good kegging setup?

I have absolutely nothing as far as kegging is concerned. I also don't really know what I need so I was seeking a little assistance from those a little more knowledgeable as far as kegging is concerned.

Is this a good setup since I need everything?

http://www.cornykeg.com/catalog.asp?...showprevnext=1

Also, is that a good price? I noticed those regulators don't come cheaply. I could do some searching for cheaper regulators and tanks, etc, however with shipping from several different locations that might end up costing more.

Any and all information/replies are greatly appreciated and welcomed, even the sarcastic ones. ESPECIALLY the sarcastic ones.

Just adding things up in my head, it doesn't seem like a great deal, but it's fair.

It's a decent deal because it comes with a 10lb CO2 tank. Most kits come with 5lb. Here is a good kit at kegconnection that is a little cheaper, but comes with a 5lb tank.
http://stores.kegconnection.com/Detail.bok?no=325
You can upgrade to a 10lb tank for $10 and save $5 overall from the cornykeg kit. Plus kegconnection has $7.99 flat rate shipping.

The equipment looks fine. I've purchased it cheaper at Adventures in Homebrewing recently. Shipping costs probably would be the determining factor if it was me.

I prefer to purchase locally. Especially kegging equipment as you should be able to get a filled tank and a quick demo of how to use it if you need it. Have any leaks, bring it back and let the sort it out. As well as seeing the condition of the keg you are getting.

If you have an LHBS's give it a shot and also see if they can compete on price.

Personally I would go with the KC version. Looks like better hose materials, etc.

I agree. Keg Connection uses mfl connectors and oeticker clamps too, which are vastly superior in my opinion.
I think you can get a 10# CO2 tank upgrade for $10, as well.
Disclaimer: I don't work for Keg Connection, but I am a very satisfied repeat customer.
