    I was wondering, what would be the optimal SDHC card to get for usbloader? I just played some games from microsd 4gb but i normally use that for my DS, im planning on getting 8 or 16 gb SDHC non micro, but im not sure what speed is the best.

    Like if i get a card thats more expensive but the wii doesnt even need it to be that fast, id obviously want a cheaper one then.

    But i dont want to waste money on a card that laggs up games either. So any word on what is the ''optimal'' speed?

    Put the $$$ towards an external hard drive instead.
    More storage space for your buck.

    I did a test between class 4 and class 6 and haven't found any loading differences between the two. Games that had loading problems on gamma ran fine on both class 4 and class 6. Obviously I wasn't able to test every game but I feel like most if not all games will run just fine on class 4. To be safe I would get a class 6 though.

    Space? How is 2.5" taking up too much space?

    Yeah.....about that, you still need to do the ultimate test with Need For Speed Undercover, in gamma the highways doesn't load fast enough to continue driving...!! [​IMG]
