    I'm thinking about getting a new SD card. I want to use it primarily for:
    Homebrew,
    Virtual console games/Wiiware games,
    Media: Eg: A few divx videos at aa time for watching with Mplayer CE

    Now my problem is finding the right SD card.

    So far I found this one:
    http://www.aprmedia.co.uk/product.php?pid=5645
    (Verbatim SecureDigital SDHC Class 6 4GB Memory Card)

    It's a class 6 so it should be fast and 4GB is a nice bit of room my only problem is I'd much rather have an 8GB card but I don't think I can find one relatively cheap that is of a high class (Fast). I also don't want to get any SD card that is going to have forseeable issues with the wii for what I want to use it for.

    So hopefully someone could suggest a card (Link me) or look at the one I found and tell me if it's suitable etc.

    Thankyou

    Location, location, location.
    look dude just go to your store and get the size you want. Speed wont matter for these things. You do have to know that the Wii only starts to support SDHC starting with firmware 4.0.

    ya i agree with apekop, dont worry about speeds... just get the size you want for the price you can afford...the loss in speed will be minimal , mabey 1-2 sec max in terms of xfer/load speeds...

    high speed cards are really only beneficial for taking digital pic's as save speeds are hugely faster so you dont have to wait as long between snaps...(my opinion of course) .. or if your some uber nerd who has a *nix distro on a sd card you can boot from...
