Default What Flash Card for Olympus C-5050

I just ordered 2 - 128MB xD Cards off EBay for $56.95 ea No Tax $6.00 for Shipping.
I was thinking of getting a 512MB Compact Flash card to Transfer images over to since the xD Cards are supposed to be faster for taking pictures.

CompUSA has a SimpleTech Brand 512MB CF Card for $149.99 after Rebate plus Tax and Shipping extra.

Is the Olympus C-5050 Camera fast enough to really take advantage of the Faster Transfer rates on the more $$$$ expensive CF Cards?

The SimpleTech Card is rated at only 1.5Mb per sec with a burst rate to 8Mb. According to what I have read the more $$$$ Cards are much faster.

I figured that if I am just using the CF Card for Image Storage it SPEED would not be a factor.

If anyone out there has any input I would appreciate the feedback.
