    I've been looking at this sd card for my dsi, but Im not too sure whether its good enough to play games on etc, cause I've heard if your sd card isn't fast enough demanding games will lag?

    The specs of the sd;

    its slow, so you may experience slowdowns.

    go for the cheapest class 6 card you can find, transcend tend to be a good cheap brand.
