    looking for honest opinions and experiences as these seem to be the top choices.

    price is not an issue.

    i will obviously be running this on a 3ds.

    i would like to play ds, gba, snes games on it.

    go!

    Then only SCDS2 can do it, others can't play GBA/SNES on 3DS.

    SCDS2

    The only one that actually runs GBA games.

    The Supercard DSTWO is the best decision. It's a great flashcart that can play DS, GBA and SNES games.

    If you need more help, check out my 3DS Hacking FAQ.

    The other flashcarts can't run GBA games. The only flashcart that can is the Supercard DSTWO.

    Can the supercard 2 play Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo games without an emulator as well?

    How well do the games run Genesis and GBA games?

    Where can I buy them cheap?

    Thank you.

    The Supercard DSTWO can play Sega Genesis and SNES games. I'm not sure as to what you mean when you say "without an emulator". You're using an emulator on the DSTWO to emulate the Genesis, GBA and SNES games.

    The DSTWO runs GBA games quite well. To run Sega Genesis games, you'll need a homebrew called JenesisDS which based on my experience works rather well. Do note that it can't emulate every single game, though.

    As for purchasing the DSTWO, you can get it from RealHotStuff. It's a good shop that I've purchase from before. If you would rather not purchase from RealHotStuff, choose from anyone of the below shops.

    the processor-accelerated emulator on the SCDS2 is far better, a lot of games i've found not to work on snemulds work on NDSSFC and with virtually no issues at that.
