So if you're not maxing out your camera's buffer with continuous bursts or video, a fast card will do nothing for you - except drain your wallet.
That is not entirely accurate. Faster cards mean spending less time waiting for the images to move from the card to your computer. This may not be important for some people, but many photographers will have hundreds or thousands of images to transfer and slower cards simply take longer. Time is money (to most).
