Marsala Questions

AliceS | Oct 10, 200606:00 PM     5

I am about to make chicken marsala at home and therefore must purchase marsala. First of all, what would happen if I used regular white wine instead?
Second, what purpose does marsala serve besides making chicken marsala? What is marsala? Is it only used for cooking? If I want to serve it to drink, should it be chilled, room temp? Should I bother buying a good brand and if so what is a good brand? If I am only going to use it to cook, I will just get the cheapest one.
