    i just bought a acekard 2i with a 16gig memory card, i just wanted to get some idea of how many backups i would be able to fit on a 16gig card? [​IMG] i understand that they will be all different sizes so just a estimation would be cool

    If you trim them, around 400 roms + 250MB for saves.

    I've got a 4GB with about 100 trimmed roms + a few GBA + a few homebrew, so 400 seems a fair estimate.

    I've found that a 8 GB is plenty. I have tons of games on mine which I never play (read: about 3/4 of them), but I like to have them there anyway.

    jack's estimation seems to be right in the ball park.
    my 8gig stores 70~100 games (games i am or was interested in. so probably little bigger than "average" size of all roms)

    games range from 8MB to 128MB (I think there's one 256 too).

    I'd say the average is around 64, trimmed to 40MB, so 16,000/40 ~ 400 games.

    (numbers are estimates)
