It depends on what you need it for and how much `space` you need. Without that information it`s a bit like asking how long is apiece of string.

You should be able to determine your needs better than us, but as with a HDD the more space you have the more you may keep in it.

Also would like to know what you will be using it for. If large backups, an external Hard Disc drive would be better.

Theres no whats best really, the bigger the better say up to 2 gig, some people I know prefer to have 2 seperate memory cards, one with applications on it and one with things specific to the business, its what you are comfortable with.
If in doubt get a larger 2 gig card, it makes no difference if you don't use it all.
As johndrew says if its a larger size of backup you need then hes right an external hard drive is a better idea though you can hardly call them pocket sized!
You could use a mix of both, its up to you, I don't know anything about your business, how it works and what you need the memory cards for etc but if you sit down and think about it I'm sure it'll come to you.
From the link I provided for example to 7dayshop a 2 gig memory stick starts at only £8.99 and thats not going to break the bank larger hard drives, external ones can be found for as little as £50 depending on size and make click here
You'll have to decide yourself. Personally I would buy the bigger ones as they are so cheap anyway.
