Ultra II 2gb vs Extreme III 2gb?

I have a Sandisk Ultra II 1gb CF card for my Maxxum 5D which is fine for just going out for the day, but not enough flash memory to go on vacation with.

On Amazon they have the Ultra II 2gb CF for about $80, no tax and free shipping, after a $12 mail-in rebate.

They also have a Sandisk Extreme III CF card for about $110 plus $10 shipping, minus $12 mail-in rebate.

So my question is, is it worth the $30 difference for the extra speed with the Maxxum 5D?

So far the Ultra II 1gb I am using seems fast enough but I have never tried the Extreme III. So I really don't know the difference.

BTW, where is the best price on the NP400 battery?
