    Hi
    For original NDS, replacement NDS cases are readily availale.

    The last ones I got were from Ebay and only cost about $10 (Aus).
    Whilst they are not as good as original Nintendo case they do the job quite well and come with all replacement screws, buttons stickers and even a relacement stylus!

    You will also need a Tri-wing screwdriver to remove the old case, but these can also be found on ebay and may even be offered with the case.(The screwdrivers are very cheap and nasty but you only need to use them to remove the original screws as the replacement ones are regular phillips head.)

    Fitting can be a little tricky, (especially the hinge retainers), but there are several good guides online to help.

    If you have NDS Lite, cases are also available but are about four times the price.

    For some replacement cases check out Gp2xstore, they are located in CA.

    DealExtreme also has replacement cases and if you want to make your unit stand out you can go for a Shock! replament case.

    Dealextreme has some high quality cases an a lot of different colors. They also sell the TriWing screwdrivers for about $1. They also have guides on how to install them.

    Can you verify the "high quality" of these cases personally?

    I haven't bought one, but I heard a lot of good things about the shock cases. If you don't believe me, there are many reviews for the cases at Dealextreme.com so check those out.
