    I'm trying to buy a Gameboy Micro flashcard that supports mini sd storage and that plays if not all then most GBA games.
    I searched Dealeextreme and so far the only one I've found was this one

    But it seems rather expensive... Does anyone know if there are any like this one out there but with a cheaper price?

    It's the best you'll find for the money, as far as RAM and ocmpatibility. Unless you need RTC for the Pokemon games, anyway.

    I can confirm, that's the best you'll get for price. Believe me, it's worth the $30 you'll be paying

    That's a very good question. One which I have no clue how you came up with. Would you like to clarify your question so we know what on Earth you're talking about?

    The 3in1 would not be a good choice for a standalone GBA cart. You'd want to look into the EZ-Flash IV and the M3 Perfect.

    That's probably the cheapest one out there.

    That's expensive? You cheapskate.
    My first GBA flashcart cost $110, so this is anything but expensive, considering it's a one time purchase to play all the GBA games you want.

    I hear ya, my Flash2Advance Ultra cost me $125 (though it went down to $105 several weeks later) and could store 128 MBytes of data. But it was still worth the money for the services it provided.

    It's one of the few with both proper built-in RAM to run nearly any game AND uses an external SD card. No built-in storage that you have to worry about using up.

    Um, an EZFlash IV and a 2 Gig MiniSD would allow you to play every single GBA game ever worth playing for around $40 total. Which is, the cost of 2 GBA games, or one AAA DS title. Level up.
