    See, after doing tons of looking around on which flashcart to get, I decided on an M3 Real and the EZflash 3 in 1.
    Since it's my first time buying anything like this I just wanted to have you experts make sure I'm not getting ripped off, etc.
    I have an original fat DS so I'm getting the gba game sized 3 in 1:

    Along with that, of course, I'm getting an M3 Real and I'm going to bundle it in with that 4gig Sandisk micro SDHC, for $25.

    http://www.realhotstuff.com/m3-ds-real-p-267.html

    And just to double check, the "3 in 1 expansion pack for EZV (GBA Size)"...works with the M3? I just want to clarify that before I get it and turns out it's incompatible.

    And that's pretty much it...thanks in advance peoples! [​IMG]

    do not get the EZ 3-in-1 if you are getting the M3 Real
    not only will it not work with the built in GBA support but also you will forfeit all the extra features that the M3 GBA Exp Pak comes with such as gba cheat support, real time clock, and real time save

    get this pack instead
    http://www.realhotstuff.com/real-rumble-expansion-p-258.html
    and on the bottom, select free replacment cases for the gba exp pak (comes with regular NDS case)

    also buy the MicroSDHC card else where
    you are getting ripped off buying it there, amazon sells them real cheap
    http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-microSDHC-M...2676&sr=8-3
    or
    http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Class-Micr...2676&sr=8-2
    or

    Joe88 basically put all what I was going to say when I read your post. If you get an M3DS Real, you definitely need to get their expansion pack. With that combo, you'll have the best GBA support of any flashcart on the market.

    In the pictures it'll look like the expansion pack is only for the DS Lite, but if you choose the option for the extra cases (like Joe88 said above me) it'll come with one that works on the original DS. All you have to do is unscrew the original expansion pack and put it in the bigger case. After that you're good to go!

    And whatever you do don't buy the memory cards from their site. On Amazon and Buy.com you can get a 4GB from $5-$10 instead of $25. This is the one I bought: http://tinyurl.com/m3realsdcard. It works great!

    Yeah it'll fit. Just like I said in the post above you, all you have to do is unscrew the original and put it in the one for the original DS. Just make sure you choose the replacement cases on the bottom of the page.

    yes just make sure you check the "Free Replacement Case Set:" right under where it says available options

    its pretty much this, but its free with purchase of that pack
    http://www.realhotstuff.com/expansion-pack...ases-p-288.html

    by default it comes with the DSL gba case, and you can just switch it with the included regular NDS gba case

    Yea I got it. I edited my post, SO one little question left: Is it easy to unscrew the case off? Do I need a special tiny screwdriver or anything?

    It's not like the screw is super tiny. A below-average sized Phillips screwdriver should do the trick.

    EDIT: Looking at it again, you shouldn't have any problems unscrewing it. It's about normal sized.
