    A class ten will get your roms (or backups) onto it to sd card faster but thats all i can think of. The size your looking for is good enough (Unless you happen to want to download every game you can find which then you might want a 200 GB).

    Stay way from Kingston. Don't buy memory card from Ebay or anywhere that's shipped directly from China & Taiwan & India.

    Any class 10 should be sufficient.

    If you want absolute best card then look for Samsung Pro, Samsung Pro+ (Samsung Pro Plus0, Sandisk Extreme, Sandisk Extreme Plus, Sandisk Extreme Pro.

    It's okayish card (not bad, not outstanding). But that price is normal for the card. If you can hold out a little bit, these card can be under $10; or in that price range you can pick a Sandisk Extreme

    More reliable and a little to significant speed up in transfer speed (depends on your card reader and USB port. And you can use it with Ultra HD camera or used with Wii U for significantly noticeable improved performance.

    Anyways, here is Samsung counter part in the smae tier of the above card the http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-list..._name=1&mv_style_name=0&qid=1456252021&sr=1-4 for $10.08 before tax in case you can't wait
