    Hi everyone, so I decided to go ahead and buy the Acekard 2. Now, I just need the right microsd card. I tend to get bored with games pretty fast, so a 2gb one will perfectly suffice. I just remember hearing that its VERY important to make sure to buy a card with "fast read speeds", otherwise the games tend to lag horribly. I was thinking of going with the Sandisk 2gb Transflash microsd card from dealextreme. Will this one work well with games? Thanks

    A kingston 2 GB should do the trick. I have it, it has decent write speed and read speed. ^_^ I got mines from here. Deal Extreme.

    Kingston 2 GB Micro Sd Card

    It shows a 1 GB one, but it's a 2 GB. ^_^

    I thought there were Classes with only SDHC MicroSDs.

    Yeah thats the best option to do. Sucks that all my closest electronic store sells the MicroSD's that are all Class 2. They don't sell anything higher than Class 2. newegg.com is also great.

    I use a class 2 sandisk card on my M3 real and it works fine. 2gb cards have no classes.
