Recommended memory card size

For the first time ever I've had a compact flash card go bad on me. Still not sure what happened. I use a 7d and it stopped taking pictures and gave me an error. I was able to get my images off of the card, but cannot format it. It scares me to try and fix it and use again, so I'm going to discard and buy a new one. I typically use a 8gb card and I also have a 4gb as well. I almost always shoot in RAW so images are quite large. What would be the recommended card size? I don't want to get too bid and put all of my eggs in one basket and lose everything if it were to go bad again, but on the other side I don't want to change cards very frequently.

Thoughts and recommendations?
