Is it worth upgrading?

I need some advice please. I currently have a LG 37LC66 withSky HD, Sharp Bluray player and E10 HDDVD. I'm happy with my telly but the little voice in my head keeps telling me to buy a 1080p. The largest I can get is a 40" (wife has banned larger!) and a maximum budget of £699 so don't really know if its worth the cash to upgrade.
Basically should I be happy with what I've got or get a 1080P?
Thanks in advance

A 50" would look stupid in my front room. Used to have a 42" plasma and it dominated it but not in a good way.
I think the general gist is that with a 37-40" 11 feet away there is probably no real difference between P and I? Is this correct?

You will notice some difference but of course only on HD

Not huge but at least some yes

I've taken the plunge and bought a Toshiba 42XV505DB. £712 from Dixons after 5% HOT5 discount and 3% Quidco. Ideally it was very wife friendly and ticked all the boxes I was after. Looking forward to getting it now. Roll on next Monday!!!
