hehe i know I've ordered there many times but i believe it's cheaper to get it locally.. but those are the brands the local stores seem to carry.

I haven't heard of any of those brands. Probably not good choices. Go for something like a Lexar brand, they will last longer.

As long as it is a brand name card i think you'll be aright.... transcend, and Sandisk are two of my favorites

Ultra two's aren't as fast as the transcend class 6. I think the SanDisk Ultra II is only a class 2. but i'm not 100% sure

class 6 is as fast as it gets, but shooting at 3 fps i'm not sure you'll see a marginal difference.

Sandisk and Lexar are two of the best. Their prices should be reasonable, and you should be able to get what you need from either of those brands. They are known for their reliability.
