    R4 or M3 Real
    R4 is cheaper but only support up to 2GB microSD. M3 Real support 8GB micoSDHC.
    go to check Depot888, i bought R4 $21.99 there with discount code 280721. No microSD include [​IMG]
    the price is down now. I'm planning to buy another card for my brother as Xmas gift. [​IMG]
    here is the link:
    R4DS with 2GB microSD $26.95
    M3Real $29.49

    Unless its posted in the wrong place, the OP is asking in GBA, not DS.

    Also CycloDS is far better than those sorry two.

    He did asked for card... *shrugs*

    One note of warning: Do not buy R4. Or you'll regret it. It's now discontinued. R4 used to be an awesome flashcart but now they are very outdated and aren't updated now.

    Like Hadrian said, get a CycloDS. My fiance have R4 and I have CycloDS and I can tell you, CycloDS whips R4's butt.

    Although, CycloDS is a very pricy card (averaging $40-65). If you are tight on your bank, go for AceKard 2 or Edge. Edge is a clone card of CycloDS - I haven't tested it but I've heard it's pretty good card.


    However, if this was in the correct thread and you are looking for Slot 2 for GBA games - get 3in1. I've got it, it seems good if you have some patience. I suggest you check this page, it's very helpful if not a bit outdated.

    He never said he had a slot-1 device at all, so recommending the 3in1 may be a bad idea if he's looking for a standalone GBA solution.
