    For GBA games, nothing beats the EZ Flash 4.

    Anyone will tell you that the best GBA modchip is the GooBstick which is sold for 14 Euros from the highly proclaimed CGBstuff.net. Don't worry too much about the currency conversion, they accept GamePal either way. The GooBstick only lets you load games rated between 2.5 - 3 stars by a composite of the most popular game rating sites/magazines, so that's all you really need feature-wise. It uses the popular Xd card media and allows region-free handheld play, which is quite unique. It has a battery life of :45 minutes. And most importantly it allows homebrew based on the award winning HRTH processing chip.

    if u get G6, then u can use it for DS games as well.
    the only problem i faced was about 5times corruption in like 5months.

    if you got an R4, i'd say 3in1 expansion

    M3 perfect, G6 lite, 3in1, and ezflashIV is what you're really looking at. maybe supercard lite too.

    I'm assuming this guy wants to play just gba games on his gba so the 3 in 1 or supercard are no help (supercard gba is supposedly shit)

    the ez flash 4 is considered one of the best cards for the gba because it runs all games at full speed. the only problem with the ez4 is that it requires a patch for the pokemon games to work.

    some other alternatives you might want to look into are the m3 lite (if the supplier sells it with a gba shell) and the g6lite.

    Another vote for EZF4. I have the EZF 4 Lite Deluxe but it works exactly the same has the GBA sized version. You have RAM for Opera and uyou can play GBA games and NDS games. Plus its cheap

    Yet another vote for the EZFlash4 [​IMG]

    If you don't have a DS yet, you could look at the M3 Lite. It has a built-in movie player. But if you don't care about movies on a GBA, go for the EZFlash 4. It's great.

    Don't listen to them!!
    The EZ3 is better than the EZ4 GBA wise, I know because I got a EZ3 three months ago.

    BUT!!!!, I really have some issues with it, I seriously recommend you the G6 Lite!

    But I had (and now my brother has) an EZF4 and we haven't encountered any problems with it, GBA-wise... All games work great, and it uses miniSD cards. Expandable memory FTW [​IMG]

    I have the EZFlash4 for the GBA/DS Phat, and it uses miniSD cards. There's also a DS Lite version, that uses microSD cards and sits flush with the DS Lite. There are two versions of it, though, regular and the Deluxe. The regular one doesn't have GBA support, the Deluxe does.
