Flash cart or a second DS?

I've been wanting a flashcart for the GBA-SP (and now DS) for a short period
now. All I want to do with the flashcart is simply be able to play old NES
games through emulation. (Not interested in pirating GBA games, in fact
been looking for the smallest and least expensive flashcart since all I want
to do is NES.)

However, at a local retail store (where DS's are on the shelves), the DS
keeps grabbing my eye for me to purchase a second DS. The DS is awesome for
only $150. Since nobody I know has a DS yet, I'm thinking if I just had two
I would be able to play multiplayer with anyone. With Xmas approaching, I
can't really justify buying myself two $100 toys (a second DS and a
flashcart).

Which would you go for -- a second DS or a flashcart?

Decisions, decisions! :^)

Buy the flashcard. In the end, I don't see any reasons why you want to keep
2 DS'es. Eventually people will have their own DS as well, and a lot of
games are good enough for their singeplayer atm. I think buying two DS'es is
a waste of money... Money you can spend much better on the Flashcard.

If you haven't yet bought a flash cart, I have a 512MB X-Rom with cable for
$75 shipped. It is one of the better flash carts on the market and my price
is $20 below regular price (factor in what other smaller carts sell for with
shipping, and this is a great deal). Let me know if you are interested.
