    Hey guys, I am waiting on my gateway card now that they support multi-rom. I was wondering what is the max size of sd gateway takes; would it be 32gb or 64gb. Further to that would a 64gb card be wasted space? I know there aren't many roms that take up more then 2GB!
    Thanks :)

    I have 22 3DS roms on my 32GB SD and I have about 1GB left lol So unless you plan on playing more than 22 games regularly you should be fine. I recommend getting a decent quality SD.. I am using a Lexar 300x (45MB/s) which isn't top of the line but it seems to do the job with no apparent lagging or slow load times. I know they make 600x or something but i'm not sure the 3DS would even read that fast (copying the games would be much faster though). Kingston makes good quality products and is arguably the best.. I got the lexar on sale for $25.

    Go with 64gb, i filled up a 32gb with only about 26 games. I have 40+ on my 64gb now and its not even full. Count how many roms you have. Also, Gateway supports up to 128gb cards. Fat32 and Exfat both supported.
