i think the biggest you can get a 4:3 LCD is 21", Never seen one in the flesh, but ive seen heaps of 21" crt's

my next cab will have a 19" LCD, i have most of the bits, just short of 1 joystick... i over spent on the first one and bought too much of everything... i even have a spare keyboard encoder for the third cab if i ever build it.... (wifey has said that i should start selling them... dont worry danny it would probably be one a year at the rate i build stuff)

here is a pixel ratio chart i found if that helps anyone. didnt realise there were so many standards

I have a bunch of old 19" Dell monitors sitting under my house, all in working order. So it is kind of silly for me to look at another size monitor.

I was also thinking if I feel comfortable enough I might see if I can build a couple with the intention of selling them(Hopefully making enough to cover the next build). Only problem is my cabinet maker neighbour across the road who I can borrow tools off is selling his house dammit... :o How inconsiderate of him ;)

Yeah, there are a mass of different sizes, but most of the conventional size stuff for Monitors and TVs fit the 4:3 16:9 or 16:10(8:5).
So unless you are doing a funky little screen in a car or something or using an old dumb terminal as a monitor. Or an old school projector. You should be fine...
