Take the job offer or stay?

I need some unbiased feed back....I went on job interview on a whim. Turns out the hiring manager liked me a lot and I got a job offer the next day. The offer included a hefty pay raise with bonus potential. The job is similar in scope with some more responsibility and the potential for good growth. But the health insurance/dental/vision benefits are not great, but all other benefits are similar. The new position is salaried, my current is hourly.

The main issue is I change jobs frequently, often jumping ship every year so. Some jobs I have stayed at for only 6-9 months. I have been at my current job the longest - almost 3 yrs. Do I stay put and add some longevity to my resume or take the job with the more money? My current job is pretty much a dead end, but isnt really any heavy lifting.
The more money would be nice, but it isnt necessary. If I stayed at my current job, Id most likely go get my PMP cert.
Additional info -
I have been out of college for about 5 yrs. Both jobs are with finance companies and are in IT. I'm not into to either job really,they are just a source of revenue. The current job is a strict 9-5 no OT required ever. New job is located in a industrial park in a suburb. Current job is in a major city.
