I usually go to a retail store like Walmart or Gamestop to do my game shopping so I can't really offer my opinions on what site is best for this field, but my older brother likes to go on Amazon for games and accessories.

Not really, SDs have really gone down in price over the last year or so since so many devices use them, the only store I can think of still selling them for atmost +60 would be walmart seeing as how they don't get good deals on hardware.

A lot of retail stores mark up the higher-capacity SDHC cards quite a bit. Target sells Lexar Class 10 16GB SDHC cards for over $60.

OP, for SD media check out Newegg.com as well. Also, for games, check out eBay.

what class should I get for acekard2i?

Hardly matters, since the class is more directly tied to the write speed than the read speed.

I've been using Dane-Elec and Lexar 4 or 8GB class 4 microSDs with absolutely 0 slowdown issues...

Im also using a 16gb class 4 microsd (think its wintec, made in korea) and dont have any issues whatsoever.

It's got 4.5 stars customer rating. I ordered two off of 1saleaday.com a few days ago, and got them, they're the real deal. Flash memory isn't nearly as expensive as retail marks it up to be. They get you with the $5 in shipping, which is how they make up some of the price difference. Newegg sells them for almost the same total price ($12.99, free shipping) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007962%20600006209%20600006234&IsNodeId=1&name=16GB&Order=PRICE&Pagesize=20

for computer parts , I mainly use tigerdirect , although I have used amazon for my multi mem/sd reader ..... for everything else I use ebay .....on ebay , I dont buy from people with a score lower than 99.9 , although I sometimes even shy away from that if I dont like the reviews over a past couple months , I prefer to buy from a seller with 100% rating .... but always review them and their rep before you buy... for example how many negs do they have , how many items that your looking for have they sold with positive reviews , ect . .........

The problem is E-Bay is an auction right? I feel like if I try to buy something from there someone else will outbid me and the price might get too epensive.... That is how E-bay works right?

Yes and no. If you want, you can set a "buy it now" price when you're selling an item. Many shop that sell via ebay do this and forego the bidding procedure.
