    What would be the fastest Slot-2 cart in terms of RAM speed? Is having 32 mb of RAM neccissary for many things or is 16 fine? What would be the best cart for QuakeDS2 and DSLinux? Thanks!

    For Quake2DS you'd want the EZ-V 3in1 expansion pack, as it has the fastest slot-2 RAM. For DSLinux you'd want something with 32 MB to maximize your usability, but the cheapest device that will work for this is a slot-2 Supercard which would be horrible for Quake2DS.

    Basically all homebrew except DSLinux would be fine with 16 MB. DSLinux will still run nearly all programs perfectly fine with just 16 MB but you won't be able to run graphical Links for example.

    I know the 3in1 is faster than the M3 Perfect which is faster than the slot-2 non-Rumble Supercard, but I don't know where the other slot-2 EZ-flash products factor into that.

    I'd been wondering that same thing.

    I'm going to go search DSLinux now...
