From what I understand you need to use the same kind of caps but the voltage can vary. The 1000uf 25v should work fine and might also reduce the same thing happening in the future.

The higher voltage of the new caps are able to withstand more heat "from what I understand".

I actually just had this problem and replaced the same type of caps on an old monitor.

I took a five minute trip to Radio Shack and picked up new caps there. They were pretty cheap.

One thing you will notice is caps with a higher voltage even though the same kind as the old ones will be bigger so make sure they will fit on the board you are putting them on.

Sorry I don't have any technical terms this process was new to me as I just recently did it.

My tutorial is stickied in the Monitors and Displays section, the method I go over briefly in there involves looking up impudence and ESR ratings for the replacement capacitors. Replacing the blown caps with ones of equal value is what most tutorials and people suggest and usually works, but can't be guaranteed. I recommend my tutorial or similar, but Sno's method will likely work.
