    Yeah the title pretty much says it all.

    I am looking for the best place to buy a new flashcart, I don't have a DSi currently but am thinking of getting one so need cards that are compatible with DSi. I am also looking for the cheap place that I can buy a cart from, I found one at Gamezway the cheapest (for the AceKard2i with 4gb: LINK ) and I think it offers free delivery but I'm not quite sure... I live in the UK so I need something cheap and free delivery please.

    Also which do you guys think is better: AceKard2i, M3i Zero or Supercard DSonei? I personally want an M3i cause of it's popularity, but I want the Supercard cause of it's nice looking white cart but I thinking of the Acekard because it's the cheapest around.

    I am looking for something aroung £15 - £20 ($25 - $30) with a 2 - 4gb

    Thanks, Tajio

    Sorry if it's really long, there might be some spelling and grammar mistakes.

    EDIT: Is the Itouch 2 good? It's cheap at Gamezway (Link)

    Supercard because it has all the features of the M3 and the RTS (real time save) is better.

    acekard2i and M3i Zero are definitely the two to pick from...

    Supercard DS ONEi is meh, better than some carts (ezflash vi, r4 clones, itouch2, etc), but not as good as the two mentioned above.

    I saw that you're from the UK - gamebygame is definitely a good retailer, but i don't know how much the shiping price will be.

    consider 4coolday - about 10 days shipping time, but extremely cheap.

    Thansk for the helpful advice guys.

    Now I'm confused on which one is better for value and features: Acekard2i + 4gb = £19.99 or M3i Zero + 2gb = £19 something (can't remember...), So that's an Acekard2i from Gamezway or an M3i Zero from Gamekool....

    Guess it's time to look at some reviews...

    EDIT: Looked at reviews, went through forums, looks like AK2i is really popular and has more compatiability...

    EDIT: By the way has anyone ordered from Gamezway? Is it fast, I don't mind waiting.

    I've just ordered an M3iZero from Discoazul, 22,99 EUR + 11.25 shipping.
    it is a bit more expensive than gamekool (for what I've seen) but at least they ship from Europe (Spain).

    Gamezway suck because they pay people to spam advertise themselves on GBAtemp and about a million other forums. The spammers always hide URLs in their signatures and so far I have seen 2 users advertising for Gamezway. Actually I think it may be 3 users now.

    A lot of people here have said it, dealextreme.com
    A word of advice, if you're planning to get a dsi, it's good to get about 2 or 3 carts. This is in case nintendo decides to update the dsi and blocks all flash carts (again). Sometimes, some groups of people (say the acekard group) will get updates to bypass the block earlier than other groups (eg, m3i zero) and vice versa. Having more than one cart will get you a better chance of getting an earlier update.

    However, by your price range, you're probably not getting more than one cart (however, get another one sometime in the future). You can get probably get an acekard2i (since it's a cheaper one thats also really good) with a 4gb micro sd for about $30.

    I'd honestly recommend you order from somewhere based in the UK. Xpertron are really great anytime I've ordered stuff with them.

    £16.95 for an AK2i, it'll arrive in 2 days, free shipping. Brilliant service. Worth it.
