This Christmas I'm hoping to upgrade my monitor.
I'm not sure whether I should go for one say 24-25" monitor or go for two 22" monitors.
The idea of dual-monitors has been something I've been wanting to go with for a while, however one bigger screen sounds cool too. I mean, bigger is better, right?

I'm always confused about this type of topic, because I did run dual 20inch monitors for awhile and truly loved them, but always never really used both monitors. I recently ordered a 28inch 1920x1200 monitor for my new Mac Mini, since going back to using a single display, my laptop, I find I can use 1 larger display, then 2 smaller displays, since I am very good at organizing the way I arrange my windows. If I like the 28inch monitor, that much, I may order a 2nd one for the Mac Mini, and try it that way, and see if I like it. I typically only run dual monitors, when both monitors are exactly the same, or they don't always line up properly and with OCD, it bugs me and makes my stretched out wallpapers look funny.
To sum it all up, I would say, go with personal preference. I would first try a large display, and then if its still not enough, when you get more money, order another one of those large displays, and then you can have even more real estate over going with two smaller displays.
