What is the advantage of Installing a DB Instance on a different BOX(mean to say "distributed SAP Web AS")?
If i have a good box can I do a all in one install
(central SAP Web AS) on a single box for my production XI server.
From Planning Guide.
A central SAP Web AS:
If you install the database instance on the central instance host, you install a central
A distributed SAP Web AS:
If you install it on a separate host, you install a distributed system.

I guess you should go by the sizing guide and also taking into consideration of what is affordable and to achieve maximum efficiency.
The word "good" can be very misleading and might end up having a oversized box.
1. Come up with a high level details of the volume of messages that the system will process.
2. Use Sizing guide
3. What's the criticality of the interfaces that will run on the XI system ? Use Availablity guide to determine how best you can come up with highly available system landscape if required.
I think answering these question will help you to arrive at a valid answer.
