    Go with the $10-12 R4i Gold 3DS from r4ids.cn If you want GBA emulation and RTS go with the DSTWO for $30-40

    DSTwo if you don't mind the cost.
    Acekard 2i if cost matters. (but kinda losing out)

    DStwo is probably the best choice: emulation (though not perfect), skins, super fast updates and blah blah.
    The other carts cannot emulate GBA games too.
    Acekard is quite slow in updating and it can be a massive fuss.

    There's another one I think it's R4i Gold something which is also quite good.
    If I'm not wrong it's the dual core with r4isdhc. Don't count on me for this one.
    I think it's the one listed above mine ^^

    Some other tips:

    EDIT:
    I reread your post.
    If you do not want a clone + no regrets, then probably DSTWO is the most wise choice as it has no clones as of now and has constant and consistent updates.

    GBAtemp's main sponsors are usually reliable, or you can also try realhotstuff.

    I'd suggest the same cards like WatchGintama. Both DSTwo and R4i gold from r4ids.cn have fast updates (within 24h after they got blocked). The Acekard 2.i needs a lot of time to get updated (some weeks). The R4i Gold has lots of functions (many Skins, great slot-2 support, aso.) and the DS2 has a GBA emulator (it works very well) and real time features.
    You shouldn't use PayPal. The company works against the flashcard sellers and it's possible that you will never get your card.

    Wow really? I bought 2 DSTwos and 1 Acekard using PayPal with no problems at all. :O

    Although I did get one DS2 from ShopTemp which was KABOOM. :(

    EDIT:
    You're right. I didn't see this:

    I guess I must be quite lucky.

    Sorry for double post but

    To OP, if you are still insistent on PayPal,

    It's okay I guess.

    If you care about the price, just get r4i gold 3ds released by www.r4ids.cn
    If you want more functions, just go for dstwo.
    I would not recommed you ak2i just because it does not support 3DS 4.3.0-10 till now.

    No everyone can afford a flashcard at $30-40 nowadays....That's why I always recommend R4i Gold 3DS(r4ids.cn) to my friends.

    r4i gold 3ds from r4ids.cn is right for you.Using famous wood firmware , easy to operate,working great on both 3DS and DSi latest firmware without any updating.And according to GBA Roll about popular flashcart , r4i gold 3ds with a high rank as well,so i think,this one you can take it into account.
