I wouldn't worry about it too much. Memory card speed won't really affect anything except perhaps how quickly the icons appear on your home screen after booting up the system. If it helps I'm using a 16gb Sandisk Ultra sdhc and its been fine so far.

I've never experienced a problem using a SanDisk SD Card in my system; I've had a Class 4 32GB one in my system for about a year and nothing. I only say this because occasionally I'd get reading errors using a Lexar-brand card before that, which would boot me from any downloaded game I had been playing. So, if you can find a good SanDisk Card for cheap (and with "back-to-school" sales beginning at least in America, they'll be on sale soon), I'd go with that.

Exactly.

Try to get a class 6 or higher. The ammount of GB can vary, but class 6 and higher will load the data faster.
I got a PNY 32GB class 10 card for $35 last year in September about. There are better deals and improvements they've made since then, so it shouldn't be hard to find a good one.

That should be fine, but it really deoends on how many games you plan on buying.
A 16GB SD card has around 120,000 blocks(3DS memory) available, and a high memory game like Animal Crossing: New Leaf requires 6000 blocks.
So you can potentially carry 20 full 3DS games like Paper Mario: Sticker Star(5,000 blocks) before a 16GB SD card gets full.
In otherwords, you should be able to buy at least $700-800 worth of video games before a 16GB card gets full.
You would be able to buy around $1400-1600 worth of games without needing another SD card with a 32GB SD card.
Again, it all depends on how much memory space you need/want.

I got the Kingston 32 GB class 4 SD card. Works a treat. Seeing as you're in the UK you can always browse www.dvd.co.uk
They have pretty good prices and free UK delivery.
