I assume we will need to get a bigger SD card for all the games?

I doubt the 2 gig one could hold 20 games plus all the other things I have so far.

You kidding? NES games barely take up any space, and GBA games aren't much bigger.

What the above poster said. They won't take up more than maybe 50 mbs total? Though that's being generous.

How much space does 10 NES games and 10 GBA games take up?

Let's say the largest NES ROM AFAIK, is 1.6 MB, so if you multiply that by 10, that's 16 MB. Considering that this was the largest, and that the other 9 are obviously going to be smaller, then the maximum space taken up by 10 NES titles, would be less than 16 MB, right?

GBA cartridges hold from 4 MB to 32 MB, thus 10 GBA games would take up between 40 MB and 320 MB.

So, on their own, the total of 10 GBA and 10 NES games would be less than 336 MB. Leaving roughly over 1.7 GB left.

And before you say what I think you're going to say, can you really say that the extra space taken up by extra data, such as maybe the animation thing in the menu, and maybe save data can really take up the entire of 1.7 GB or even more?
