    Even though I have to switch games all the time on my 512CF, it's enough to me. [​IMG]

    I have been called a idiot for saying that 512 mb is enough space.. looks like almost 64% of the people on this board are idiots.. [​IMG]

    512 that’s way more then anyone needs, I recommend sticking a screwdriver in the G6
    Ram & shorting out the Ram to 128 or 64. Hell why on earth would you need all that
    Ram? To have room to check out all the new games that come out every day? That’s
    crazy talk! 64 Meg is all anyone needs.

    Excellent idea, while you're at it you could use that same screwdriver to "disable" the top screen of the DS.

    As a matter of fact, that was my only card(with its gba card), and it even bent the pins on my DS card SLOT [​IMG]
    Care to donate funds for a new flashcard/DS? [​IMG]

    I have changed my mind and just thrown away my flash kits as they were not big enough. I am now holding out for a 250 GIG solution so I can hold ALL my MP3's, Most my Family Guy, American Dad, and Simpson Episodes, Some Other T-V Shows, About 300 GBA Roms and 100 DS roms oh and all NES, SNES, and GB roms. And of course I need another 15 gigs for comics....shit better make it a 300 Gig solution. I'd also like to see some swiss army knife mods to my DS so I can also use it to brush my teeth, maybe have a spork come out of it and a toothpick. Please change my vote to "no 512 Mb is not enough"

    ....oh wait my sarcasm has worn off....keep it where it is at. The 4G mark is good...it gets kinda scary for testing in the event there is 4 1G games that come out but it hasn't happened yet and in the event it does it won't ruin my day. I still tend to play 1 game at time. I think I played cooking mamma and Hoops at the same time which was probally the first time I was able to multitask but normally games like Slime or Mario RPG or Phoenix Wright I play one at a time.

    512MB, honestly, is more than enough for me! I'll order a DS-X next week since I've already got 2 flashcards covering my GBA needs. [​IMG]

    3~4 NDS games with a handful of GBA and NES games seems like enough for me.

    But, of course, I won't complain if I can fit even more. [​IMG]'

    So is there any more news of the new 1GB G6L? I'm waiting on that before I buy a DS but I want one now damnit.

    I voted 1GB because I want 512MB for games and 512MB for music.

    I have a minisd 2gb.

    I got 2 gb because I got confused with the mbit rom size thing. 1024 mbit I read as 1024 mb what would be a gigabyte!

    The worse: I did completly understand what was the 4Gbit of the G6, for example.

    Well.. It is good to have enough space. I have two brothers, so they choose the games they want. I put some movies too...

    Fine for me, I have trouble filling it up and actually playing all the games. I just like fun, and my brother just likes mario so its all good size wise.

    This debate reminds me of that Bill Gates quote about RAM.

    "640K ought to be enough for anybody." - Bill Gates, 1981

    Yeah thats 640k of total system memory. Thats what we used to work with. Hell, my first PC (Apple II) came with 48k and I though I was the shit when I bumped it to 64k by soldering on 4 more 4k chips.

    Is 512mb enough? Of course it is. Hell you could say whatever the size of the largest possible DS game + savefile would be is 'enough'. Say 258mb?

    Yes your G6's and whatnot are enough right now when the roms are 20-64mb in size. What happens later in the DS's lifespan when games start to really push the DS's hardware? What happens as NAND (or whatever they use in real carts) gets cheaper and publishers dont care about cranking out 256mb games? Assuming you will need a couple MB of space for saves, will one game be 'enough' for you?

    For me 512mb is not enough. I have a 2GB card and I already feel the space squeeze. The whole point of the flashcart for me was to have tons of shit on there. If I was willing to settle for a handful of games, I could have just stuck with original carts.

    512 is enough, but more would be nice. For video it's not really enough to fit multiple things on there but I don't use it for video.

    Good point, but I got it planned out.. When the games get too big for my G6L 4Gb, I get the G6L 16Gb that will undoubtedly be out by then. My 4Gb will then be used for GBA games & emulation of earlier systems.

    Heck, I still use my EZ-Flash Advance 256M for GBA stuff and my Bung 64M for GB stuff.

    I still see from all the technical specs I've seen on the DS carts in the past that max size has to be 1 gigbit. But by all means, I'd like to be proven wrong to support bigger games with more depth like longer RPGs.

    I like to have lots of games and homebrew and such on there, so 512 is not nearly enough. I have a 2 hour bus ride to work every day and I like to watch movies on it as well. I have 1GB and it's barely enough...

    Home, WhereElse?
    The technical max addressable by the DS port is apparently 4Gbit, or 512MByte (even though the largest we have seen so far is 1Gbit/128MByte) - all without using custom hardware (bank switching) like they did with some older cart based systems (so in the end it is quite possible to go as high as they'd want if they are willing to spend extra to develop and manufacture custom hardware).

    Funny to think that this question was targeting those with 512MB, not those with more wanting to say "I have a bigger penis"

    512MB is plenty. Except that now, there were a few games that I didn't want to remove in order to put in newer games. Anyways, I got meteos on my cart which I will not remove, and other titles that I want to play and finish. I delete the ones I don't enjoy, but won't delete meteos because I enjoy it immensily.
