    EZ Flash Slot 2 cards have excellent GBA compatibility.

    Supercard Slot 2 cards have decent (not excellent) GBA compatibility, but they're cheap.

    I have an EZ Flash 3-In-1 that I got for about 19 dollars shipped.

    If you do decide to get it, remember you might need to also download the latest edition of GBAExpLoader to load GBA homebrew/roms.

    If you want perfect compatibility but dont mind paying a bit more, get one of the M3 lites.

    btw, just a thought, since the DSi has 16mb memory, wouldn't it be possible if someone(not saying some1 will) just makes a gba emulator for the DS(i)? Ofcourse if there is a real hardware issue i wouldn't know, but just theoretically speaking shouldn't it be possible?

    I think the DS isnt powerful enough to emulate it
    usually the unwritten rule is a system has to be 7x or more powerful to emulate the a system
    even the PSP somewhat struggles with certain games

    well, following what you said, the DS emulates SNES just fine, or at least good enough.
    SNES's spec is as follow(don't quote me on this):
    if you compare with the SNES, it's low on specs, other than the vram. I still don't see why it cannot be emulated on the DS, all I can think of is that there are some type of hardware problem or conflict or something :3

    the DS ARM7 is running at 67MHz by the way.
    The only thing that allowed us to even run SNES semi-decently on the DS was the similarity in graphics chips.
