The Pi will work with most 8GB SD cards.

generally yes, but for specifics, look at the wiki: http://elinux.org/RPi_SD_cards

The Pi supports SDHC memory cards so yes 8GB will work although you should check the compatibility list just to be sure - http://elinux.org/RPi_SD_cards

FWIW the five different brands of 8Gb cards I've used (along with other sizes etc.) are shown here: http://www.cpmspectrepi.webspace.virgin ... cards.html
(and they're logged in the eLinux wiki).

Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, 2xB2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, and a A+) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm

One of my RasPi model B rev 2 512 is running Raspbian from NOOBS on SanDisk 8gb class 4 micro-SD with SD adapter. Running remote, 24/7 headless, wifi, used solely for Dump1090. All maintenance done via vnc and ssh. Runs like a dream. :D

I wouldn't take that page particularly usefully, in the cases where people have not found it to work they are mostly having trouble because of known bugs in the software (-110 timeout errors)

So far we've not found an SD card that doesn't work with the Raspberry Pi, or if there were problems someone sent me an SD card and I fixed the bug!
