    I'm getting my girlfriend NDSL and flashcart on her birthday.
    At the same time, I'm getting myself NDSL and flashcart as well.
    So here it goes

    My Girlfriend:
    Owns GameCube
    Has 2 brothers who might get NDSL but probably wouldn't get flashcart, so probably needs to supply download play herself.
    Don't want her to go through hellota mess of setup, interface and stuff
    -> Considering DSX (16G if I can get it before mid April, but 4G would seem no problem either)
    for it's appears to be superior download play ability over with flashed NDS, neat GUI, and USB-cart direct connection

    Me:
    Would be dead poor after getting 2 NDSL+2 flashcarts+memory
    Multiplayer probably mostly with my girlfriend, don't really have to supply download play to people, I can leech off them.
    (And if DSX doesn't support d/p and we insanely love the game and its multiplayer we'll just buy one)
    Don't need nice GUI (I could even use Unix operated NDSL lol j/k)
    Performance >>>> Graphics
    Owns custom firmware PSP, so all emulators can run off PSP possibly including GBA
    NDS games gotta be highly compatible, stable, and fast
    -> Considering M3DS Simply, but EZ5 comes real close.


    At the moment i'm pretty fixed on DSX + M3DSS + 1GB Kingston(Japan) MicroSD
    What do you suggest? Thanks in advance

    I'd suggest getting an R4 instead of an M3 Simply, just because it's cheaper for the exact same product. Other than that I think you've chosen the right carts for your (and your girlfriend's) needs.

    One thing you might consider though, is that if your GF is only going to play multiplayer with you and her brothers, it will cost more to get one DS-X than three of these: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2069

    That's a clone of this cart: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=45180

    I've never dealt with them myself, but most people here that have seem to be pretty happy with them. They've got the best prices I've seen for the few flashcarts they actually carry.

    Go with the R4/1gig mSD kits from dealextreme. The price is $43 US and they deliver worldwide. I've ordered and received several shipments from them with no problems.

    Thanks for the info destructobot, but I'm confused about one thing
    Review says if I load the game I can remove FireLine, but every time I load anything I have to have that FireLine in there? That's how I understood it.
    Well the price surely is very tempting, maybe I should ask her if she won't mind having something in the GBA slot. I don't mind looking like carrying a Wii if it works way superior than other cards, but she's quite into design.
    Thank you pcsoon, it surely is a great deal, some people are really skeptical about wether this is real, but I'll go ahead and get one,

    The GBA thingy is only needed when transferring files to or from the cart. After the files are transferred, you take the GBA thingy out and put it away until the next time you want to transfer files.

    Ah, thanks a lot! That clarified everything. Now the only thing left is finding the seller with lowest price! I got more than a month till the D-day so I guess I'll consider getting shipped from HK.
