    Does this sound good?

    Hey, I have a list of things I want for the Wii, including the Wii. Tell me if everything sounds good or if I can eliminate some of the things. Also tell me what I should add, if anything.

    P.S. I have to buy ALL of it with my own money.

    Nintendo Wii- $250
    512MB SD card- $50
    Component cable for Wii- $25
    Extra Wiimote- $40
    Extra Nunchuk- $20
    Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam- $50
    Total: $435 (probably about $470ish with taxes)

    I know that THDJ isn't that great of a game, at least that's what I heard. But, I am a diehard fan of the Tony Hawk games and it's a must have for me, so please don't tell me it's not worth it or anything.

    All of that looks good. You know you can buy a 1GB SD memory card for under $30 on eBay, right? You don't have to shell out all of that money for a Nintendo Wii brand SD card.

    Well, I know but I just don't feel safe with Ebay sometimes and it would make me feel 10 times better if I got the Nintendo brand SD card at the store. Thanks, though.

    ^ Little Reminder (if it's true): You have to get the Wii Update to be able to use any other brand SD card. I'm not 100% if that's true as I don't have a Wifi USB Connector yet but it's what I've been told. If it's wrong, then excuse my ignorance.

    Huh... never heard that... I have WiFi in my house, so it wouldn't be a problem. If it IS in fact true, does it prompt you to download the upgrade when you put in a non-Nintendo Wii SD Card?

    Good question lol but unfortunaly, i'm not the one to be able to answer that. I suppose it'll just not read the card. No prompt or anything of that sort.

    Yeah a 1gb card would be nice because I heard you can download demos and stuff soon over wifi so it will come in handy, i think TigerDirect.com had them cheap, but eBay will probably save you loads.

    I have a Kodak 512meg card in my Wii. Bought it a while ago for my camera for approx. $45. I dont think you need to drop that much money for the card.

    waste on the SD card, i bought a 1gb SanDisk SD card (SANDISK MAKES THE "NINTENDO" BRAND) for $15 its a waste of money to buy the nintendo one

    and if you live in chicago and the tax is 9% it will cost you 475
