I currently have an older 16gb transcend 300x that seems a bit slow. Buffer fills up quickly and does't clear as fast as my a 700 did while using the same card

Well the A850 is 24Mp as opposed to 12Mp of the A700, hence the slower write time for the larger file size maybe.  As you'll see from my original reply, the Transcend 32GB 400x CF card (TS32GCF400) is plenty fast enough for normal use and you can guage write times subject to file type (I use RAW) with the shutter pressed for continuous shooting before the buffer starts to fill and slow down, but if you shoot JPEG, I would think you'll get more-or-less uninterrupted write speeds.  Available from Amazon, though worth researching for a lower price.
