Default Which R4 Card?

I'm looking for a good R4 card that can run Homebrew apps aswell as normal DS Roms.

Are these the cheapest without using flea bay?

How easy are these things to use because it's gona be a present for my nephew & he's made a list of 50games that he's gona download & i'd like to get this done for him to use it straight away -keeping the 'Number 1 Uncle' flag flying!

What size of memory should I be looking to get if I were to put 50 games on it?!

I have a couple of R4 cards for sale matey if your intrested all you will need are the micro memory cards and the software that you can download from the web. These are new and never been used. I will sell the both of them for £10 If both are bought at the same time. Otherwise £7.50 each.

I can't believe how cheap these are now, i paid about £60 for mine when they were first out.

You have to watch out though as some firmware doesn't work on the cheaper ones, and a few of the brand new games don't work on R4 cards anymore.

be warned R4's only takes upto a 2gb, if your wanting to hold 50 games i'd go with the Edge card with a 4gb card..... personally

i've got a cd with games on it, if you fancy a copy pm me Azreal

i got 2 from the same place as Azreal said.

easy to find on the net, go to google type in the game your looking for and end it with nds rom. i go to several sites to get the games tbh

..... the only game i can't get to work is Phantasy Star Zero.
