    Hey Guys and Gals,

    I've been considering getting the right hardware so i can play roms on my DS for a while just never knew where to start until someone linked me to your site,

    So i signed up earlier on today and have been reading through your site for quite a while now...only one problem im even more confused than i was when i started lol,

    I know what i want to use my NDS for but i was hoping you guys could advise me on the best pieces of hardware that would allow me to do that,

    Well first things first i have and NDS PHAT lol

    And i would like to use it to play NDS Games and GBA Games and would also like the option of being able to use homebrew if i wanted (but its not priority)

    So what do you guys advise as there seems to be a lot of different things and types of Flashcarts around and i really dont know where to start,

    Thanks In Advance,

    Vel

    G6Lite (it comes with a standard sized shell)
    or
    M3 (if you go lite here, you have to buy the standard sized shell separately).

    woaw you guys are fast lol ok i did pick up from my reading that the g6 comes with the 512mb or memory...so if i wanted to use sd cards or minisd cards is m3 the way to go
    and thanks again for the replies

    (by sized shell do you mean the memory...sorry if that sounds stupid just checking)

    by shell he means the cart size, the G6 comes with a GBA and a GBALite sized cart or shell
    M3 doesnt

    if u wanna use removable memory, go for the M3

    Supercard is what you want, since you are new. The supercard is a cheap and effective way to get your gaming fix, I recommend the mini sd supercard or the regular sd version.
