RetroPie Arcade Cabinet Monitors

As for building a retropie powered arcade cabinet which ones has anyone used any that were inexpensive, lightweight, simple and big enough for 2 players?
I myself has spent many hours playing a Neo Geo MVS arcade cabinet that feels a little cramped when your spending a long time with another player playing the games, which Is why I would also get a bigger screen than ones used by those cabinets as well as making the arcade a little wider and spaced out.
I didn't want a heavy crt or monitor because I don't want the cabinet to be too heavy.
I was looking at some by Sceptre
If anyone has experience in making arcade cabinets I would like to hear about your experiences with arcade cabinets.

I've built an arcade cabinet, but rather than using a monitor, I opted to use a smaller sized LCD TV, as it allowed enough space for two players.

@luddo183 I used an old 20” 4:3 Dell monitor turned vertically that I picked up in Goodwill for $10. It’s not as light as a modern one, but I’m not moving the cabinet around, so I don’t care. The cabinet is quite a bit wider than the screen to give more space, though.

I plan on building my cab to be fitted with a 32" tv, the viewport of the cabinet will be 4:3
I decided on that simply cause 32" are super common and cheap to buy.
It having a 16:9 aspect ratio doesn't matter, cause it's not visible on the outside.
