I'm pre-ordering my first DSLR the T3iexternal link, what kind of memory card should I get? I can get the Sandisk or Transcendexternal link, which is sufficient enough?

If you plan to shoot video, you'll want to get the minimum recommended class memory card. I believe 550D recommends at least class 6.

This is important because of the speed at which it can write on the card. If the card can't process at adequate speed, the processing buffer will get loaded and automatically shut off the recording.

That being said, I use 16GB class 10 Transcend with no issues. It provides about 40 minutes of HD video recording.

I have found Transcend Class 10 cars to be cost effective and reliable. I have 4 8 gig cards and have not had an issue with them. SANDISK is also recommended but is more expensive, so in my opinion unless you are doing critical work the Transcends work fine.

I'm not the OP, but a 60D may be in my near future... So I'll be making the switch from CF to SD. Thanks for the info, Guys!

I've used both the SandDisk and Transcend, both are sufficient, especially at class 10. Flash can go bad no matter who makes it.

I would also consider getting a backup card too.

I just got my T2i and 2 4 gig class 10 and 1 16 gig class 10 transcend and I've had nothing but great results. I don't think I will be using anything else at this moment.
