    This is really being asked AGAIN? Personally, I'd say AK2i, but it really depends what you want it to do. Maybe SCDS2 will be the best, once Evo is fully completed with the emulation, ect.

    As a basic cart which excels at playing games the Acekard 2i is very popular, it has great compatibility and is the cheapest realistic DSi cart. The thing to remember is the Acekard 2i requires a firmware update to be compatible with DSi FirmWare 1.4, which is the firmware any new DSi or DSi XL will have. The firmware update can only be performed using a DS Lite or DS Phat. If you don't have one of them to update it, you can purchase it from somewhere like ShopTemp and they will update it before shipping for an additional $1 (select the premium update option when you add it to the basket) It's the most popular DSi cart at the moment.

    The DSTWO has many additional features such as Real time save, Real time cheats, Real time guide, GBA Emulation (it has an additional built in processor for this). It also has DivX and SNES emulation in the works. They are due to release the Software Development Kit, which will likely lead to some improved homebrew/ emulators. They downside is that it's $20 more expensive, and it's built in processor reduces battery life slightly. Given time it should easily be the best cart. Unlike the Acekard, it's firmware can be updated on any DSi.

    If you want something middle of the road, you have the EZ-Flash Vi or the DSONEi. They have Real Time Save like the DSTWO, but lack the GBA emulation, DIVX etc,

    Whatever you do, do not buy any R4i carts. They are all clones, and have very poor support/ compatibility.

    Most people would probably say the Acekard 2i is the best for it's price and simplicity whilst the Supercard DStwo is best for it's value and wealth of functions, and homebrew potential.

    M3 if you want RTS and RTG and stuff like that, but no emu. AK2i for games.
