In m0n0wall, the card only gets read on boot. It is only written to on
configuration saves, and upgrades. You may want a similar configuration for
your OpenBSD as CF memory has a limited number of writes. (In the thousands)
In that case, I would go cheap, and get several, rather than fast. It just
is not needed often enough to justify it.
