    Basically, it's crucial for me to be able to run GB/C + GBA games. I was going to purchase new (not used) hardware along with the flash cart.

    I wasn't sure if I should be looking into GBA SP + Flash cart, or DS Lite + Flash cart. Being able to play DS games(or NES, SNES, etc) would be awesome, but it's the retro game boy games I'm looking for. I was also hoping for something that could hold 2gb+ of data.

    Thanks for any input.

    I think you are better off with an Acekard 2i+EZ-flash 3-in-1 on a DS.
    You get DS games+GBA+NES+Homebrew
    Besides, standalone GBA flashcarts are a pain to find and they are always used.

    Acekard 2 + EZFlash 3in1 FTW.

    If you don't mind paying a few $ extra, go for the CycloDS/DSTwo + EZ Flash 3in1. Although the Cyclo won't work on a DSi, it has more features for future use (especially DS games) than the AK2i. DSTwo if you want to use the cart on a DSi (in the future).

    He wants to play GBA games. All he needs is a cart that works with gba_exploader and a 3-in-1. IN the case of an Acekard 2i, the 3-in-1 functions are integrated into AKAIO.
    The extra features of the DSTWO and Cyclo don't interest him. Besides, the Acekard as a good team and Normatt behind it. And the DSTWO is too powerful/expensive for what he wants to do.
    A DSTWO with a 3-in-1 would come up at 55$
    A Cyclo with a 3-in-1 would come up at 60-65$
    An Acekard 2i with a 3-in-1 would come up at 35$
