When buying cards, look specifically for the brands you trust (Sandisk, Lexar, Kingston, and Transcend in my case) in the speed ratings you need, then do the math for cost per gigabyte. It's often better to buy bigger cards, but you've got to check the numbers for that. My last purchases of fast 300x Transcends and the 400x Sandisks were both at $9.25/GB, and both I and my friends/family have been happy with the slower 266x Kingstons which can be found for about $5.60/GB... fully 40% cheaper and only about 20% slower than the 300x Transcends.
I need to pick up some cards before ISAP, and something funny is going on with Transcend prices. On my 7D, using a 4GB 300x Transcend, I get about 23 RAWs before the buffer stalls, and it is completely cleared in 11 seconds.
At Newegg, a 16GB 300x Transcend is $150, but a newer 16GB 400x is just $70 (60MB write speed). The 300x is probably high enough performance, but I can go even faster for a lot less.
A 32GB 400x is about $150.
