ANY ADVANTAGE IN A FASTER CARD ?

I doubt that there is any advantage in the camera. I think the card you mentioned is already faster than the read/write specs of the camera. However, faster cards will allow you to upload your images faster to your computer if you also have a fast card reader.
(I think Rob Galbraith has this kind of information on his website, although the D200 is an older camera and its data may now have been archived - he seems to show the more current models.)

If you find yourself filling the buffer, a faster card will allow your camera to clear the buffer more quickly. On an older body, I'm not sure the differences between the 400X/600X/1000X cards would necessarily be much.
On the other hand, I notice a huge difference in speed moving files off my 400X cards over my 133X cards. If you don't like waiting while the cards move to your PC, that speed is a big plus, though just a convenience.
I just ordered 1000X cards, though they may not be supported on your camera (UDMA 7) and I've heard some rumbles that you need a USB 3.0 port and a USB 3.0 reader to use them (luckily, I'm in the tech industry and I do).
Net: I think the faster cards are worth it if you shoot at max FPS and fill the buffer and/or want to wait less downloading your pix to you PC. Just make sure your camera supports the card.
