best cookware set for ~$50?

I just moved into a new studio and I'm looking to buy a cookware set. I just had a pan before that I threw out so I pretty much have nothing right now. I only cook every few days so I'm not looking for something really fancy. But I do want something that is respectable. I've been reading these boards and it seems as if the Tramontina line in Walmart would be a good buy. I looked at the 8-piece set for $35 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produc..., but I didn't like the handles and the thinness of the materials. I like those that have soft grip handles and overall solid feel. And I think I would prefer non-stick. I am considering this $50 Tramontina set from Walmart http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produc... but I haven't seen it in store since it wasn't available.

What do you recommend? Is this $50 set good enough? What other brands/products do you recommend? I went to Broadway Pandhandler (NY), but it just seems like a set would be a better deal since I don't have anything right now. I would also appreciate your suggestions for cooking utensils or knives. Thanks!
