Worth getting a high speed SD card?

Considering which SD card to get in anticipation of actually getting my wii console.

Is the wii able to utilise high speed SD cards, or should I just get a bog standard one?

Cheers.

SD cards read quickly anyway and since the data sizes are very low a standard one will do.

Kingston 2GB for £13 on amazon :)

To be honest the data you'll put on and off your SD card will never be bigger than 32mb, I think 64mb was the largest N64 game (Resident Evil 2) and I doubt that will be on the Virtual Console, so is there really any need for it to be high speed?

Is there really any need for more than a 256mb SD card, given that information then?

Cheers.

I've read on another forum there is a different in write speed between x1 SD cards and higher. However I doubt there is much point in getting a true x133 card. You can get a 1gb x60 on amazon for less than £15. As for the sizes it depends what you plan to do with VC games, saves games, mp3s, movies etc

If you move a downloaded game to the SD card and erase it off the system can you play it off the card? Because i saw a video which showed you couldn't.

I was thinking of buying an SD card but then thought, 'Why do I need it?'

Technically, we don't even need cards for games guys.

As far as I know, as soon as you've paid for a game, you can re-download it whenever you want. I reccomended a high speed card earlier, but thinking about it, just one to transfer on and off the internal memory will do.
