If you can make a shot cos your card gave you an extra 20 milliseconds in which to do it, then you should be either making enough to retire or featuring on Penn and Teller as the Man with Cat Like Reflexes!!!
Buy the best quality you can get irrespective of speed is my opinion.

If you shoot RAW the larger cards are more sensible - if you shoot jpeg 1gig is probably big enough - say 300 plus shots

If it was only 20ms I'd completely agree with you. But the CF speeds on my 20D can range from 1.2MBs to 6MBs. Clearing out a full 20D buffer would be between 13 to 65 seconds depending on which card you used. El cheapo cards tend to be slower. For me it probably wouldn't matter. I never fill my buffer but some shooters would.
Regards,

Tzuknami, thanks for posting that link. I had seen it a while back but lost track of it.
