I ordered a EZ-Flash IV mini-SD for my GBA-SP (completing my collection).
Ofc I need a 2Gb mini-SD too.

Is a regular mini-SD good enough or is a highspeed (80x) better?
The mini-SD is only used for reading + flashing games, right? So a lower speed mini-SD should be plenty.

Right?

For GBA it does not matter as everything runs from the ram/NOR.

For DS it matters somewhat for a handful of games (Castlevania POR, tony hawks games, megaman 5 videos and the like) but for the most part it does not, most "high speed" cards are a joke/marketing gimmick though. Chances are if you are getting a newer 2 gig card it will be OK.
