    That pack seems to come with just the R4.

    You will NEED a Micro SD card to play games. The R4 supports up to 2GB cards.

    Get this one. Cheapest card, Free Shipping. Takes about 3 weeks to get in the mail if u live in the US.

    Have fun!

    Judging by your question, I can safely assume you're new to this.

    The R4 is not the cart you want. Its the most well known, but its past its time. Other carts are getting new features and GUI updates while the R4 remains stuck in 5th or 6th place as far as "good" MicroSD-based flashcarts go.

    Better choice:

    No, you'll still need to purchase a MicroSD card separately.

    If you mean limit to the size of the MicroSDHC card, no. It supports the largest MicroSDHC cards available.

    Best Buy tends to be a bit expensive. Try smaller stores. Or get them online for like cheap.

    For microSD cards, I recommend purchasing more of smaller capacity chips rather than buying one expensive chip. That way you have more capacity for a lower price. How many games are you possibly gonna play at a time? The only time I would buy anything 2GB+ is if it's on sale.

    Actually, the bigger ones tend to be cheap compared to the smaller ones. Like for example, 1 GB may be like 20 bucks and 2 GB is like just 30. For just like $10 more, you can have another GB, where if you bought two 1 GB's, it'd be 40. That's what I see at stores anyways.
