I say it depends on the distance of you sitting down and plating to the TV.

To be honest since I'm a visual whore, (pardon my language) I would say the bigger, the better as long as it's 1080p.

Well for me, 19"-26" is good enough for me. I play from my computer desk so I'm relatively close to the screen. Like people have said before me, depends on size of room, distance away from TV, and other factors. Also, personal preference. To me, I don't really like HUGE TVs. 32" is the maximum I would ever buy.

Between 20 and 24 inches at 1080p resolution is what most pro gamers use

well, for most people bigger would be better, more expensive too. Some people like bigger screens, some people like smaller ones. What I would recommend doing is go into hhgreg, tmart, best buy, one of those stores, and look at the different sizes. Stand at about the distance you will be, and make your decision. It's all opinion. If you have a size, then I can help you find a good tv. If your looking for a big tv a 50 inch is pretty good, not humongous, but a big screen. And you can get pretty good deals.

By "tmart", do you mean Kmart?

No, Tmart, an online store but you can also go into Kmart.

I went from playing on a 19" SD monitor a few years ago to now playing on a 37" full HD LCD TV and it's amazing, bigger is so much better, but that's what she said, too!

Sony seems to think 24" is the best: Here

I use a 32" 1080P TV, but that's just my preference.

I think it's more of a personal preference. I play on a 42" and it's great for me.
