    1. look at gateway 3ds's site (via google, can't link to it) under 'resellers' tab. also look at mt-card, it has multi-rom and is a little cheaper.
    2. you need a dstwo NDS flashcart to play gba on a 3ds
    3. you need firm 4.5 --> 4.1 to run gateway cartridge. if below 4.1 you need certain cartridges to upgrade (donkey kong country is a good one). get a blue or red 3dsXL with a certain serial code, look here http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/3DS_ha...the_System_version_before_buying_a_new_3DS.3F

    if you can find a 4.5 XL it is almost certain you won't need a cart to upgrade (they started at 4.1 i think). just use at the link i gave you to check serial codes against systems at low-sales stores (ie not walmart). give it a try.
