Hopefully going to start my build soon,supply willing it'll be an intuos 4XL based one.Been checking out the Anntiq build and the Cabroontiq builds,and im currently undecided whether to go for a 23" monitor or a 21.5 any pros/cons with either?

The Intuos4 XL is a 16:10.  Most LCDs nowadays are 16:9 -- so watch out when comparing.

(If my calculations are good), the biggest 16:9 LCD that the Intuos4 XL supports is a "22.03" inches. You'll start having unreachable pixels over that size.

If your LCD is a 16:10 (unlikely unless this is an Apple display or an old display), then the max size is "22.6 inches".

A bigger LCD will have unreachable areas (there are ways to workaround that, but it does not always work).
A smaller LCD will work just fine.

Hope that helps.
