To use on my 3DS?
Will there really be a big difference in the speeds loading/writing?

It's OK, loading might be a tiny bit slower but nothing to worry about. I use a class 2 card lol

Have you ever used a Class 10 card? If you haven't you wont notice the difference. If you have, you still may not notice the difference.

And why would you say that? Class 10 is the best.

Your right it is the best, but difference isn't anything to be worried about, not for this instance and if TC hasn't ever used a Class 10 card he isn't going to know.

It probably won't make a difference, even with a low class card, load times aren't that bad

Ah I see.

Well to avoid making another topic about SD cards, I'll simply ask my qustion here;

Is there any notable difference between a class 6 and class 10 SD card? From what I've read, it seems like not all SD cards that are labeled as class 10 get to utilize its full power on the 3DS because of the write/read speed that the system has. In this case, I wonder if the class 6 would be sufficiently enough in terms of speed when it comes to loading/reading digital data.

Couldn't tell you a thing about that. I honestly use a "classless" SD card so like Class 1 or 2 equivalency and its fine. If you can find a Class 10 for the price of Class 6 buy it, it cant hurt but I wouldn't buy a class 10 that's like $10-15 more just cause its a Class 10.
