Should I upgrade?

Hey guys I have a Giant Stp 2. This bike comes eqquiped with a marzocchi mz 2(not a very good fork) and V brakes. Now a good friends of mine has a kona stinky 2007, he just got it last year and only used it for downhill 4 times he wants to sell the fork and frame because he is upgrading(yes i know he likes to spend money ) I asked him how much he was selling his fork and frame he said 600 or 700 $(canadian) I was wondering if I should just buy the fork for about 200, would it look stupid on my bike(its a marzocchi drop off triple) if I put this fork on my bike would it be bad for the frame or would it be fine?

the fork would be too long for the stp. plus i dont think the stp is strong enough for dual crowns.

besides, dual crowns on a hartail looks absolutly awful...
