    I need to buy 3 R4i cards, one will be used on a NDS Lite and the other two on New 3DS and Old 3DS.

    The cheapest I can find is r4i silver total cost of 41.50 dollars for three http://www.3dsgamerworld.com/r4i-sdhc-rts-lite-for-3ds3ds-xldsidsi-xl-p-12.html

    And r4i gold from ads-card.com total cost for three 51 dollars http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149

    Are these genuine? Is r4i silver the same as r4i gold? I'm so out of the loop, it's been years since I bought one (two DSTwos and a M3i Zero I bought last time and i paid a mint).

    If your 3ds is hacked/pre 10.4, just stick with the r4i silver. Otherwise, go the gold. The difference is minimal in terms of gameplay

    Yeah my 3DS is pre 10.4 for sysnand. So the main difference is that silver doesn't work on 3DS 10.4+? So the r4i silver can't be used for potential exploits on 10.4+ 3DSs?

    According to the sites you linked, yeah. I would go the silver, as you can always get a9lh and update to 11.0 while still being able to use your flashcard.

    I would go for the second (the r4ids.cn one), I have one of those myself and it works flawlessly for me.

    There's also Ozmodchips, which sells these and ships from within Australia, if you're willing to pay a bit more for quicker/more reliable delivery.
