    circuitcity.com has a kingston 512mb sd card for $10. I was wondering if anyone knew if this was a half decent card and if it would work well with my supercard sd for playing mainly DS and GBA games. I currently have an old 256 san disk card but I am looking for something a little bigger and for a fairly cheap price. Does the read/write speed of the card really make a difference in playing games? Any insight is much appreciated. If this card is no good, does anyone have any other cheap suggestions for something I can buy in the US?


    here's the link to the card if anyone wants to check it out:

    Also, anyone know anything about this case?

    I hate having to wait forever to get stuff from overseas...that's why I am trying to go the circuitcity route for most of my DSL stuff.

    Thanks.

    I ordered one of those myself.

    I ended up cancelling after seeing the new BatchDPG encoding method for moonshell. I'm gonna need a LOT more space than 512.

    I have that intec case but the psp version. it works nicely. it only opens about 90º, but its a good thing sometimes. about the card though, 512 no longer cuts it if you want to take FULL advantage of M3/SC. Its a good price for what it is though..

    That actually reminds me...i think they constantly have good deals on SD cards on slickdeals.net [​IMG]

    The Kingston 512MB SD for $10 after MIR is not a bad deal for that size card. Best Buy had a better deal earlier this week for a PNY 512MB SD for $5 after MIR. There seem to be sales almost every week on SD cards from various retailers.

    I have 3 of these 512 cards ($30 CDN, thought that was a good deal) and it works perfectly. So buy it.
