    I've seen some for very high prices, and I was wondering if any are cheap?

    Neoflash is currently almost complete with their flashcart, but who knows how much that one will be.

    my "cheap range" is $0-$50 USD

    There is only one possible *hope* and thats if Neoflash actually finish their line of console flash carts (The Megadrive version is out).
    But it won't be that cheap, the NEO Myth MD 3in1 flash cart I have seen for $150.
    Also given Neoflash's history it might be crap.

    Neoflash N64 Myth flash cart is highly recommended. It works great. It is $199 but I consider that to be a middle price. People keep saying it is too expensive. Well maybe if there were more people buying them or if there was more competition. They are expensive to MAKE first of all, hence the price. Supply outweighs the demand but supply needs to be paid off otherwise the manufacturer can't make money. They aren't going to take a loss on each cart sold.

    The price range you are looking for is ridiculous. N64 carts were always really expensive.

    I know it dont run every single game but i will stick with my PC for N64 games and the first xbox for anything older. I dont need PS1 support as i have a real PS1.

    I do remember having a Z64 way back and i did like it but that was when the games were still coming out on it and i was downloading them through newsgroups on my 56k modem lol . Man it use to take almost 2 hours for 20mb then.

    The Z64 was the one that used Zip Discs. That thing was awesome.

    This. Be ready for 100$-150$ at least.

    You're probably better off going for the cheap one recently manufactured by Team NeoFlash, which will still cost you something like 150$, but at least it's readily available.

    EDIT: Just read amptor's post. 199$? Man, they should've made it a little more cheaper! [​IMG] And maybe not using their NDS flashcard as a storage medium.
