The Extreme HD Video part of the name is just telling you that it is a very high-speed card. It can be written to fast enough to handle HD Video without a problem. So it will definitely handle your camera speed.

The Sandisk cards I have are the next step slower, and once in a while shooting fast in RAW mode, they will hold me up while writing to the card. The camera memory buffer is pretty good but you can fill it up with fast shooting & big files. The hold-up is never more than a few seconds, and I've never missed a shot because of it, but it is a little disconcerting.

The Sandisk web site has lots of good info about their cards.

And as others said, format it before use, and after each time you delete files. This helps prevent corrupted files.
