No idea what to look for when getting a usb

(not sure what to call them... usbs? pendrives? flash drives?)

I want it to be at least 32gb and usb 3.0... They're different prices and I'm not sure why D: I'm using it to transfer games from my home computer to play them in other places so a fast one I guess? :O

I wouldn't recommend that link because Best Buy generally over charges.

If you are going to buy online, you can get 32GB USB 3.0 flash drives for around $20 at either Amazon or Newegg, hell you can get a 64GB stick for $35 to $40 which is roughly $10 more then Bestbuy is charging for just a 32GB

If you're looking at USB 3.0 flash drives they usually range in price due to their speed (and capacity, of course, but that goes without saying). Many USB 3.0 drives only operate at 2.0 speeds. They put 3.0 on the package as a selling point. The pricier ones take full advantage of 3.0 speeds. It's been awhile since I looked at them, though, so I'm not sure which ones are good right now.
