Brand new to DSLR, but learning quick. This forum has been a huge help to me. Thank you.

I have a SD card question. I just picked up a 2 pack of 4 gig Sandisk Ultra SDHC class 4 cards, rated at up to 15 MB/s and 100x. I have not opened them yet, cause I got to thinking, would I benefit from the Sandisk Extreme 3 cards? Will I even notice a difference?

I bought the D5000 to do basic family photo stuff, and to do sports photography of my daughter playing indoor volleyball, which I have learned poses all kinds of unexpected challenges, however that is another topic. I do want the ability to take multiple shots quickly, and I do take a lot of burst shots (if that is the right term).

I am currently using a Kingston SDHC Class 4 card, which seems to work just fine, but I don't know any different yet.

So, do I keep what I bought, or do I get faster cards for better performance?

Thanks for your help.
