View Full Version : What You Need - Cheap

June 14th, 2006, 07:02
I've noticed a lot of "What do I need?" questions, and rightfully so. Just a few weeks ago I was getting into the scene, and it is very confusing and overwhelming at first, but i want to point everybody to these right here:

If you have a sd card...

If you have a mini sd card...

If you have a CF card...

Its that simple, honestly. With your appropriate matching card, and one of those packs you have everything you need for homebrew, emulators, media players, and backups (legal ones!!). I hope this helps. Maybe a pin?

BTW: It seems new products, such as the g6 lite, are coming out with the launch of the nds lite, that keep the carts flush with the system. This is pretty awesome, however the g6 lite is a flash cart which is a little tougher to use than a memory card-based cart, and it has much smaller memory capacity (512 mb). You may want to go this route, but it wont be as easy, cheap, or have as much memory. I personally would wait until micro sd card carts are made from m3 and supercard if you must keep your gba cart flush.

Well how about GBAMP, 1GB CFC, and MML? How is that for emus, homebrews, and gba homebrews etc.?

Is Supercard SD for 29.20 and Superkey for 21.50 a bargain?

June 18th, 2006, 00:12
if your talking usd, thats a nice price.

Yes. USD.

The website: http://psxbox.net

Awesome site. Every .5 kg is 20.50$ for USA, but the Supercard is .1 kg. So that's 4.10 shipping, the Superkey is .08 kg, which is whatever.

Making the shipping cheap and sweet for 3-4 days delivery, shipped usually in 24 hours.

is this a CF card?


and they are sold out of "Supercard CF / Superkey Bundle " there... is there anywhere else i can buy?

I don't think so. But look in the "Smooth Homebrew?" topic for links to the Supercard SD (Because The SD can be accessed MUCH faster than the CF card) and Superkey for around 50-60 dollars, then just get an SD card.

homebrew hunter, thats a very nice shop, i might get some stuff from there after i look at a store review... they have nice prices certainly.

Hombrow Hunter: Are you sure you have the shipping correct?

From what I've read, the $20.50 for the first .5 kg applies no matter what - meaning you don't divide it up if your order is less than .5 kg.

To test it, I just went through the order process (without actually ordering the Superkey) and the total cost came to over $40.

Really? Lemme see...

Ew. But Airmail can be better. Fed Ex lost one of our parcels for THREE YEARS.

Eurasia.nu has 5$ shipping. Supercard SD is 55$ with shipping, Superkey is 34$ with shipping, combined is 89$...Pretty good right?? Or should I wait for Realhotstuff to get the Superkey?

June 19th, 2006, 01:34
Seems like a good deal, from my perspective, although you might want to consider that AirMail purchases (despite the 2-10 day estimate on Eurasia.nu) can take up to a month at the worst when it comes to actual delivery times.

Naturally, that's a worst-case scenario.

Realhotstuff is expected to have a new shipment of Superkeys by Tuesday, so, if you'd like quicker and possibly cheaper shipping, you may wish to wait until then to order.
