Note that Class 8 does not exist (except fakes) and class 10 is
usually not faster than class 6 if you run ext3 on it.

Also, a Sandisk card is usually faster than a card from
most other manufacturers even if they are one class faster

for a list of many cards. Go for a brand that has a larger
number of open segments. Also make sure that the partition
is aligned to 4 MB, otherwise you waste half the performance
and expected life.
