Default Canon S500 memory card speed

I just got a S500 and want to upgrade the memory to either 256MB or 512MB. My question is, is it worth it to get one of the "high speed" cards or will the camera's buffer not allow it to get any faster? The camera seems pretty quick with the standard card, so will it bump it up even further with one of these new cards?

Also, I know that certain brands read/write faster than others even though they are not the "high speed" cards. Does anyone have any suggestions and/or experience with these?

thanks a lot,

Just got a Sandisk UltraII 256 card to go with my Ixus 430 (Powershot S410) it does seem faster to save and to swap between pictures during playback compared with the Canon card.

I was a good price off E-bay even with postage from US to UK
