    I read up on both, and from what ive heard they are close. One thing Ive noticed though is that Ive heard about more slow down in games on m3 simply if u dont buy the right or a legit memory stick. The r4 however, ive heard of 0 slow down.

    I need some opinions plz..

    The M3 and R4 are identical, they both will suffer from the same slow-down if using a crap card. The M3 just gets more attention, therefore more reports of problems when things go wrong.

    The only main differences are:
    R4 gets updates about 1-2 days before the M3
    R4 case is white, M3 is black/grey

    If you are really having troubles choosing, get a picture of each device on your screen and randomly point at one, then buy it :)

    None of these stand alone can play GBA roms, is there anything I must buy in addition to be able to do so?

    You could buy an M3 Lite/Mini Perfect (Lite or Mini depends on lite/original ds)

    Or an EZFlash 3-1, though I am not 100% sure how this works yet (i want to buy one but money issues prevent me -.- )

    Make sure it's a perfect though, NOT a pro as a pro will play next to no GBA games, therefore defeating the purpose.

    I would go for R4DS. Its exactly the same except the price. In other words go for whats cheaper.
