What is the best place to buy a real DS flash cart?

Man I love asking questions :)  Anyway I was wondering if anybody knows of a good online store that carries real DS flash carts with reasonable prices. (30< for cart and memory card)  I want either an M3 Real or an Acekard 2(i).  So if anybody know of a good store and would like to tell me that would be great.  Oh and if you have a suggestion for a good cart (besides cyclods) I would love to know :)  So far I have looked at http://www.leetmod.com/acekard-2i-2gb-ready-to-go-for-dsi-dsi-xl-p-220.html this cart bundle.  Does anyone know if this is a reputable store?

Please no further answers to this question! It's been ages since I even touched a DS thanks! :)

Do you own shopping.

If I give you my best place, the price changes about every 10 min's.

So its best if you do your own searches and jump on that best price when you find it.

but do you think that price is reasonable?
Only you can say whether the price is reasonable or not. If I REALLY need something right now then most any price is reasonable. But If I can wait a week or two then I can order from China or wait for the weekend sale before I order it.

If you find a similar price at two or three stores or web sites then that's probably pretty close to the going price for something new.  You might be able to get a little bit better deal by waiting shopping around but those really GREAT deals are very few and far between.

Frankly I'd rather not obsess over trying to save 37 more cents.  I'd rather spend that time obsessing here on Instructables trying to answer more questions.

ok thanks, i actually found another site with a $10 off deal that still dosnt beat the first site
Your best place? Would that be an exclusive online site, or eBay? :-P
There is no one best place. I do the research when I'm ready to buy. Prices change to much to keep one best place.

both ak2i and m3i zero has stopped update for ages, so if all you want is playing nds games or homebrew, then you can buy r4isdhc rts 3ds,this is the most popular card, if you need,here is a usa store for you :

You don't want to buy an M3 Real or AceKard 2/2(i) They're outdated and won't run most things nowadays. Currently, this r4i gold 3ds rts card is the best ds and 3ds flashcart out there.

Just as we knew, M3i real and ak2i has stopped update for ages, so,personally i recommend your buy r4i gold 3ds from r4ids.cn,this is the most famous flashcart,uses famous wood firmware,with a quicker updating,with this card, you can play almost all latest nds games. I have tested my own r4i gold to play pokemon white 2,it works smoothly. I got from http://www.modchipfactory.com/wood-r4i-gold-3ds-flash-cart-for-3ds-xl-3ds-dsi-and-ds-lite-p-1.html ,this store provide preflashed r4i gold 3ds and free shipping .

I wouldn't recommend the Acekard 2i anymore, since it stopped getting firmware update, and it is still blocked by 3ds 1.4.5-10 and dsi 1.45 update.I bought a new 3DS XL and this r4i gold 3ds card http://www.thegamerdepot.com/buy-wood-r4i-gold-3ds-card-for-3ds-xl3dsdsids-p-150.html last month, it works flawlessly on my new console, and it uses frequently updated wood kernel, so i can play many new games and say goodbye to Nintendo updates

Bought my acekard 2i from here,  received it in about 4 days, an USA based online shop, i can recommend it. Working great on my 3DS. And another, i recommend you buy the Acekard 2i, not the M3i zero, the Acekard 2i is worth buying, if you want to buy a better card, just try Suoercard dstwo. It has the same price as M3, but way better than it.

I've never dealt with the site before, so I can't give you any first hand experience. Look up some reviews. See what some other people thought about it.
