I assume you are talking about USB Flash Memory? I think this should be more than ample for your needs...

Crucial Flash Memory 8GBs

It's $17.99

Normal systems tend to have a lot of non-user data. You would have to separate what you are using from background and malware stuff. Many users are getting charged for bits that they are not using. Consider a good firewall and other lock down solutions.

Then your normal NIC icon can tell you the numbers. Set to show on taskbar.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

There are a few options linked below.

I have personally used BitMeter (older version) and it was very good to keep track of my internet usage. This newer one appears to have more options though.

The only downside is that you need dot net framework 1 installed for it, and this download is pretty hefty.

The others also appear to be good and don't appear to need the dot net framework installation. The user reviews are very helpful in making a decision.

One last thing is to check whether your ISP counts the uploads as part of your download limit, the uploads will make a big influence on your allowable download limit over a month. BitMeter keeps a record of upload too if this is the case.

The third one doesn't say it supports Vista if that is the Operating System you will be using.
