I'd go with M3 Lite, I am not sure how much it is now, but it works great with every game that I have played, even up to 32MBs of side. It even plays DS games.
Edit M3 Lite (or at least the one I got) Comes with a case for GBA and DS phat

That is if you can find one. Even if you could, it'd be the PRO variant made for NDS only. I haven't been able to find one of the older ones. Most stores seem to be out of them. The EZ IV is a great alternative from what I hear.

Yeah that is the issue, I bought my a few years ago.
So I would go with the card he says.

Thanks for the replies. I don't know which one to chose for the moment.
What do you think of this one? http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.25752
I forgot to tell you, I only want to play games on a GBA SP, I don't need the flash cart to be compatible with any DS linker.

That card seems like a good value cause of the price, but there isn't alot of space to hold games. The link to the card i posted uses up to a 2gb mini sd card. This offers a lot more space if you want it.

That cart you posted features on-board memory, so it requires a program to load games VERY SLOWLY and the same program to back up games and the sort. You can't just drag and drop your games with ease. Also, I HOPE you have a serial port to use it. A review and picture confirms it comes with a serial cable, not USB.

EZ Flash IV, I got one a few months back and I love it. It was a bit of a hassle, but after a few minutes into the actual process, it's pretty simple to start up. Recommended to get a 2GB MicroSD card with it.

Ideally an EZ3 is the best cart to have for GBA only. m3 Perfect is good for GBA but has a few minor problems, but also plays DS games (older ones of course and/or patched). And like heavyknight said the EZ4 is pretty good with GBA (and somewhat older DS) games. I highly recommend not getting a FireLinker, etc if it is going to be used for real gameplay. I would only use those for homebrew...

    I think I've discovered recently that even though caffeine doesn't have much of a noticeable effect on me, I think it does completely stop me from going to sleep if I drink any late enough. So I'm being a bit more cautious about that now
