    I would suggest a M3 Adapter. From what ive heard, it has much better compatability than the supercard, which is cheaper. But since money is no obstacle (dam you!!) i would go w/ the m3. Has just about perfect nds compatability, and good gba comp. To play movies, you'll need to download moonshell, and convert your movies to .dpg format . Look at the reviews on this site (look at the top!!) and it'll help you decide what to get.
    good luck

    I have been looking at those. I was looking at the m3 and the G6. The G6 has almost perfect nds compatability but crappy gba emulation from what the review said. I couldn't seem to find a store with the G6 in stock. I am either going to get a super Key+ super card or the M3. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Honestly,

    I've done my research and here's the bottom line:


    1) If you don't mind 4 Gigabit (512MB) size flash system, get a Superkey + G6 Lite

    If you want MORE but don't want to wait, get an M3 SD version + Superkey from WinSunx. While you're at it, pick up a $5 extra battery. [​IMG]
    Use the various tutorials to flash your DS. Go to EBGames or Gamestop and pickup a $10 used NDS game w/ no box (if you don't already have any games for it)

    When a newer & better solution is released (e.g. M3's or Supercard's flush version), then quickly put the M3 SD on eBay on a 3 day or 1 day auction with an eBay disclaimer in the body. You can also choose to sell your Superkey with it, too, if you already flashed!

    That's it!

    With all the energy you used to type that post up, why not help the guy AND THEN suggest he also search for more opinions?

    *shrug*



    Anyways, the M3 lite is the best solution from what I've heard.

    ive got a supercard sd, and i love it [​IMG] Id suggest something with a memory card, makes it easy to transfer things, and change between sizes.

    I already have liek 18 games for it. So I will mostly likely not buy any more games after I buy the hardware for the ds. It looked like the G6 was very simple to use. It already had built in 4gig memory with a card writer to write to it. Only problem is that it has poor gba emulation from what I have heard.
    Do you know of an online store that is now out of stock for the slim m3? The winsunx store seems to have only chinese products.

    I think that Chinese version is changeable to English!

    Do any of these cards allow you to have real time save states for your DS games, that allow you to save your game at any point at any time and anywhere, ala emulator save states?
