Default Need Entry-Level Wacom Tablet

I checked the forum in case this thread already exists, but I didn't see any.

I'm looking to buy my first Wacom tablet for digital illustration use in Photoshop and Illustrator. So far, I'm considering a Bamboo or Graphire 3. I'd like to spend around $50, so I've been checking eBay for used but like-new tablets for a good price. Don't worry; I have experience in this.

I'm also curious about drawing space. I know I don't need a huge amount, but I'm also not sure 4x5 is quite enough. Something like 4x6 would make me a bit more comfortable. I don't tend to make big strokes though in terms of real pencil drawing.

I found a 4x5 Graphire 3, complete and in "great condition," with a Buy it Now of $40, but I didn't make up my mind and it ended with no purchases. I might email them to post it back up. Here's the eBay page:
