    is the ram pack only used for the web browser? is there any other benefit to geting that pack?

    also does the gba include the ram pack? and how much memory does it have for gba roms? do you need an extra micro sd card?

    i looked on gameyeeeah and it seems you can either get the gba with a normal rumble but not the ram rumble

    That's because you don't need a RAM Rumble Pack in that case: the Rumble Pack has Rumble and the GBA Pack has RAM. So a seperate Rumble RAM Pack would be a waste of money.

    Hihi

    I went for the M3 Real Perfect bundle

    Gives me a GBA extender/32MB Rampack and a Rumble pack which I never use

    the GBA compatibility isn't as good as some people would have you think, particularly with homebrew, however 85-90% of what I tried worked

    DS stuff works flawlessly

    If you plan on running dslinux then you really need the RAM, I wouldn't recommend opera, it's flakey as hell but the only one with reliable graphics -.-, I find it crashes when I try to use it with wikipedia, although links in dslinux is fine (if text only)

    thanks. does the RAM have any benefit on emulators? or will it ever be used to make them run better? if not i think i'll just get the standard package

    Hihi

    Yes, snemul uses it for the larger roms

    really for the amount of extra money I'd go for the perfect one, it'll be cheaper than buying it later on when you discover you did need it

    Chrono trigger works with the rampack as do many others I imagine

    does the m3 real have the same exact gui as g6 real? (I was really impressed, prolly the best iv've seen) as I am still thinking of getting this from gameyeeea or a supercard ds one. Which 1 do u guys recommend as im not fussed over rts.

    Also do they update their firmware like suoercard do?

    And finally how long do u think gameyeeea will take to ship to uk?
