I'm a longtime member here but haven't been around in a while, and as you know the cutting edge stuff changes very fast in the DS cart market. I'm basically clueless now. I'm looking to upgrade my setup from what I have now, which is a first version (red PCB) Supercard DS1. It runs my DS games well, but I want to put together a good DS SLOT 1 and Expansion Pak combo that will run GBA flawlessly on my DSLite. I'm picky about GBA, and Supercard can do the DS games just fine but GBA is a nightmare (I've got an old Slot2 Supercard Lite -worthless for GBA) I don't need DSi compatibility, and I'm not concerned about SDHC though sure it'd be a plus. I'm aware of the M3 Real and M3 Expansion pak, and I know EZ-Flash has the EZ-V and EZ Expansion Pak. I also know there's an EZ-VI now, but know nothing about it. I also know its probably possible to get the EZ Expansion Pak running with an R4 or other Slot1 , but I want this to be as 'plug and play' as possible. I'm leaning toward the M3 Real combo -- Slot1 "M3 Real", Expansion Pak, and 2GB microSD for $49. I don't need more storage cuz this is strictly for games (no video or mp3's). Suggestions?
