    Help me GBATemp, I think I might be becoming impulsive towards buying flashcarts.

    Today I almost bought a DSTT from RHS, however I resisted it, dispite the fact that it was only $15+1GB micro SD+free shipping. The thought still haunts me though.

    What I really should get is a 16GB MicroSD card. However I don't know how well it will work with AKAIO, and to make matters worse, any that I have found have been atrociously expensive.

    So GBATemp, help me resist my temptation, and please inform me of anywhere that is

    reputatable that
    Has well-known brands of MicroSD's
    Has 16 GB MicroSD's preferably class 4 or 6
    Is not named DealExtreme
    Is located in the united states
    That has reasonable prices (I do not want a card that is going to cost me $50+ even if it is a 16 GB one)

    I got mine on ebay for $40. You could try there or simplymods.com, I dont know of anywhere that sell class 4 or 6 tho. And I know what you mean, I've bought pretty much every cart on the market.

    I think the better question is... Do you really NEED a 16GB MicroSD card?
    I very much doubt you'll be able to find a 16GB MicroSD for less than $50, and any that you do find will probably be counterfeits and/or have slow read speeds causing noticeable slow load times.

    Eh, still $40+ there at simplymods, I'm a college student that is very tight on funds, and to make matters worse one that is naturally stingy with money to begin with.

    Thanks for the suggestion anyway! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Maybe I'll just settle on an 8GB card.

    Still the thought of getting that DSTT from RHS is still haunting my mind.....It's almost like a real life DarkChip from MMBN4-5, so sorely tempting to get...yet I have to resist it.
