    Well I was thinking about getting a DS flash card for my DSi, for the sole purpose of running backups. But when I looked on the forum, i was shocked to see so many different cards. So which on should I get. Again, I have a DSi and want to play backups, I am also looking for one thats relativly cheap. Can anyone help me out?

    You want something cheap? Than get the Acekard 2i its about only 15-18 dollars. If you want something with features like RTS and RTG get the M3i Zero. Both are pretty good in compatibility Acekard 2i has faster updates to its game compatibility which makes it the #1 cart with the best Rom Compatibility. I know some retailers that have good service like

    Dealextreme- 12 dollars(acekard) but you will get your package in about 1-3 months.
    Realhotstuff - 24 dollars(acekard) it takes about 1-3 days to get to your house, but its pretty expensive
    0shippingzone.com - 15 dollars(acekard) Really good service they will always answer you back if you have a question, and really cheap. Shipping takes about 4-8 days.

    If you don't care about useless options like real time save or in-game guide, then you should get an Acekard 2i.
    One of the best flashcards and the cheapest at the same time! (13$ on DealExtreme)
    Just put the AKAIO firmware on it and enjoy!

    I kind of wouldn't want to buy any Flashcart from dealextreme just because of its bad shipping,service, and sometimes it has bad batches. I would only order DS accesories from them like Touch Screens and stuff like that because no one else sells it.
    0shippingzone sells it for only 24 dollars(original price is 26 but they are having a Sale if you enter the coupon code you get 7% off.) and they have faster shipping than DX and much better service.

    how come no one shops at GameByGame? I always have received great service.

    Acekards there are $23, free shipping. It gets upgraded to 1st Class also, so I get my stuff in about 2-3 days.
