    Hello there

    I am trying to buy an R4i Gold 3DS for my 3DS which I just got yesterday.

    I have done some research and originally ordered on lightake, but I am in the process of canceling that order because I simply do not want to wait a couple weeks for my flashcart.

    The best site for cheap US shipping which is also decently fast I found, was the following
    https://www.ndsgamer...D6%26aid%3D5%26

    For about $20, I can have it shipped to my house in 2-4 days.

    Would you guys recommend that website?

    Also, I currently own a 4gb Sandisk and a 2gb Kingston Micro SD/SDHC. All of the websites offering to sell me a bundle with the SDHC seem to be really expensive.

    How much memory would I need for a decent amount of DS games?

    I have found an 8gb SDHC from Kingston's store at Amazon, it's about $8

    Apparently, a 16gb SDHC from Amazon from some reputable sellers is only about $15 shipped.

    Please answer my questions.

    Thank you.

    Try not to cheap out on your storage, it's quality/speed matters up to a certain point... kingston is not a manufacturer so the quality highly varies as they're a reseller.

    Here's an 8Gb class-6 for $14.

    This was in the valentine sales. Class 10, as well as 16gb. Should I pick it up?

    Also, I found the same MicroSDHC as the one you had, except with 750 more reviews and its cheaper.

    What is the difference? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820208453

    Never heard of that brand, but according to the reviews the read speed is good.
