Looking to get a gig of SD memory but I guess I need it to be somewhat fast. I have this budget memory stick I got for $15 for a gig, and it takes forever to transfer any photos to my computer or delete photos.

Looking for the best price as well.

Thanks in advance.

Sandisk ultra 2 SD cards are solid cards and provide all the speed you'll need.

I'm having great luck with Ritek Pro 150x SD cards(half the bloated pricetage of the San DIsk Ultra II).
Ritek is a well known media manufacturer and I was able to noticed a marked improvement in speed over my san disk standard(blue) SD card.

I'm using this

in my D50. Newegg is a very reputable company.
Also I could reccoment www.zipzoomfly.com

Lexar 133x SD cards are really well regarded. Their 133x CF cards are really fast, so I expect the SD cards are too.
