7dayshop are very cheap for memory cards. I'd use Sandisk Ultra II or higher and a minimum of 2GB, probably 4GB.

The battery grip depends on whether you like a bulkier camera and also whether you have a heavy lens attached. It can help balance things out better with larger lenses. If you don't find battery life an issue, don't have a large lens and like the 450's size, then I wouldn't bother.

Don't really know much about CF, but I believe it's more expensive.

You don't need to worry about CF if you're buying memory for the 450D, because it only takes SD cards I believe?
