Yes. I had a 19-inch and went up to 24-inches. The difference in resolution is well worth the upgrade, but, once you get much past 24 inches or so, you need a good graphics card to go with it. If you're looking for a new monitor, I suggest LED backlit monitors, they offer better contrast and lower power usage over CCFL's.

TV's typically make poor computer monitors. The resolution just does not scale very well for one. Plus once you get into monitors of that size you need to keep in mind that you will need to be further away to be able to see everything without having to turn your head from side to side. I think more than 30" is overkill for a computer with near field viewing(i.e. at a desk. For me the price point for viewing area is sweetest at about the 24" rangefor wide screens and 22" for regular aspect.

I use two 19" wide screen monitors at home and I have two 19" 4:3 aspect ratio monitors at work. I can't imagine how it would be to have anything bigger. You might want to consider adding a 19" monitor to your installation instead of replacing what you have with a 25 incher..

a lot of it is personal preference. I went from a 17 inch CRT to a 22 inch LCD with 1080p support, and won't even dream of going back-am currently using my hi def 22 inch and a 15 inch LCD on the side for about 37 inchs of monitor space, and it is nice. Going with another 19 inch if you just want more monitor space might be nice, but that takes up a lot of desk room you may/may not have, and a 25 inch will support a higher resolution which means better graphics. I have never seen a 19 inch monitor support 1920 x 1080 or higher-while a good 25 inch will. And you can still use your old 19 inch on the side if you want more screen to multi task with.
