TigerDirect.com does not describe the screen resolution.
The G75VW page at asus.com describes the screen as "17.3" HD with EWV (1366 x 768) / FHD 3D LED Backlight," which I interpret to mean it is offered with two possible screens:
17.3" HD with EWV (1366 x 768)
17.3" FHD 3D LED Backlight (1920×1080)
Since TigerDirect.com also does not mention 3D, this suggests the resolution is a mere 1366 x 768

To me, the MS store deal and this one are quite comparable. For $200 more, you get the slightly faster CPU, more RAM, and Blu-ray, but also Windows 8, which is arguably not as good as Windows 7.
I never watch Blu-ray on my laptop, so that's not a factor for me. And 8GB of RAM is enough for most everything outside of video and audio processing, which I don't do. I plan on getting an SSD anyway, so the 1TB @ 5400RPM HDD is actually better than the 500GB 7200RPM HDD. I'd gladly trade 100MHz on the CPU for Windows 7, so even if they two were the same price, I'd likely get the MS store deal myself.
And all of that is on top of how accessible this deal is due to Black Friday.
EDIT: My post above was comparing the two deals as they are now, so if you are able to get this for $999, then it's really a wash. A lot of people don't have to pay tax from Tiger Direct, either, so in that case this deal is actually cheaper. But as I mentioned, both this and the MS store deal are very good IMO.
