Typically I have found that the SANDisk compact flash memory to be very good and reliable when used with the AC800M controller, although they tend to be a little more expensive. QMemory and Lexar have also worked well for me in the past. In general, most cards will work fine.
Additionally, as you do not actually need a large memory card to use simply to store the controller configuration, I typically recommend to customers and when I need to purchase for my own use, the smallest card size available, which now is typically the 2GB size.
As far as a good site to purchase, I typically will do a Google search and check out a few sites to see which one is offering the best price or is perhaps running a promotion. It will also have a little bit to do with where you are located as far as shipping costs.
In the past I have found www.FlashMemoryStore.com, located in Northbrook, IL in the USA to offer good pricing. For example, they are currently offering 256MB, 512MB, 1GB and 2GB cards for under $13.00 USD. Here is the link for their assorment of cards under 2GB: http://www.flash-memory-store.com/2gb-compact-flash.html.
However, sometimes, based on clearances you can find cards with more memory at the same or better pricing. My experience is that it pays to take a few minutes to do a Google search and check a few sites.
