    Hope you guys can help me in this. It's purely a HTPC.
    Thanks in advance. :)

    Yes, it will work just fine for strict HTPC use.

    LOL, typo "Advisable"

    It will work fine for movies and media stuff, but I wouldn't trust it to play many games.

    There really isn't any difference in horsepower required between a 25" monitor and a 40" tv if they are both running at 1080p.
