Between $20 and $60 depending on where you get it and the speed. Shopping online is the best way to go, especially since you won't really need it until late May. I got a class 10 card on Amazon a few months ago for $25.

I doubt youll need 16GB but seriously why dont people use Google more. By the time someone response to these simple questions, the TCs couldve found their answer 10 times or more on Google.

You won't need 16GB any time soon. Games won't be particularly large and if/when movies are downloadable the screen resolution is small enough the files won't be all that big. However, I wouldn't pay more than $30 or so for a 16GB card. Changes are the class (speed) of them will matter very little with the 3DS, too - it's not like writing bursts of RAW photos or 1080p video from an SLR/camcorder.

Amazon has one for $25.18.

Is there any type of SD card you should not get to use with the 3DS? Regarding speed or any other specification?

I find smaller memory cards are faster. I have a 2GB, 4GB and 16GB MicroSDHC cards and the 2GB writes 3x as fast as the 16GB, and they're all the same brand and model type. Plus when I load WiiWare games from them, the 2GB loads them a lot faster as well. I think when you get larger cards, you're sacrificing speed for size.

I'm not concerned about a few extra seconds of loading if it means I can hold everything on a single card.

Depends what class the SD card is.

Weel, me neither but it's more than a few seconds. WiiWare games will take about 6 seconds to load on a 2GB while it takes about 18 seconds for a 16GB.

The 16GB is probably a lower class of card than the 2GB in your case.
