Which Compact Flash card

A have a Canon A95 camera and want to buy a new 1 GB CF card. I see there are several brands and also several speeds like 40x, 80x and 133x. Will I notice any difference in these cards using my A95? If so how will I notice? Any recommandations?

Thanks in advance

Peter

I use Lexar Professional 80X, 1GB compact flash cards and have, in my Canon 350D, found them exemplary. They also come with a recovery program. They are expensive, Amazon appears to be the cheapest source. For a 'cheapy' I also you Transcend 80X and have so far had no problems.

I've have Lexar 80x, Sandisk Extreme III 133x, Intergral I-Pro 60x CF cards that I use with my EOS 350D and have not noticed any difference in performance or write speed between them. The only one I've had any problems with is the Lexar (my 2gb failed on me) which was also the most expensive...
