    So ive got my m3i and now i want to buy a Slot2 card to use for gba games and linking and stuff. EzFlash 3 in 1 looks most promising but i dont know about the compatability. I also want one i can buy from a trusted site for 25$ or under. Also, is there any other things i should know about these slot2 cards before i buy one? Thanks in advance.

    If all you want it for is gba gaming/linking using m3 products, go with the m3 gba expansion. It has great compatability, and support is integrated into sakura.
    I haven't had any problems with any of the games I've tried. (Including games that Akaio and the 3in1 had issues saving with.)

    The downside is I believe other cards don't support it like the 3in1.

    First: Neither is suitable for GBA games. They just provide (awful) vibration. The Rumble RAM pack also has 2 MB of RAM to run the browser from, but as this is less than the 8 MB of the official pack, it crashes frequently.

    Buy the GBA Expansion Pack. The link Joe88 gave is the correct product, or if you want to buy for the site you looked at (though I'd personally use real hot stuff, I've bought from there before. They are quick and reliable) then you can find it at: http://www.divineo.com/cgi-bin/div-us/hb-ds-m3gba
