I see that no one has responded to your question.

The S60 will probably not take advantage of the very fastest cards (because it's interface to media is not as fast as some of the more expensive DSLR models).

Having said that, I'd probably get a relatively fast card anyway (because there's not a lot of price difference now, with even newer and faster cards coming out periodically).

The Lexar 80x and Sandisk Ultra II Cards are popular choices (and you'll find many others, too). Make sure to buy from a reputable vendor with lots of good customer feedback (and ask in the forums if you're not sure about them).

I personally check out any vendor I'm not familiar with using http://www.resellerratings.com too (and if they don't have a lot of good customer reviews, I avoid them). There are too many scam artists around now.

Here are some prices for a couple of the popular 1GB CompactFlash Cards:

Lexar 1GB 80x CompactFlash Card

Sandisk 60X Ultra II Compactflash Card
