Hard drive size needed for backup?

I am planning to get a new 20" iMac G5 that includes a 250GB drive. I currently do not have any external hard drive or backup solution. My question is, how important is it to have an external drive that matches the size of the internal drive? I'd like to partition an external drive into one for backup (using SuperDuper's smart update option) and another for other files. Would it be necessary for me to get an external drive larger than 250GB then, or would I be okay to get a 250GB drive and partition it into smaller drives? I know it would be an issue if the space used on my internal drive ever exceeded the backup partition's size, but if that doesn't happen will SuperDuper work?

I am only using about 40GB on my current mac's hard drive, so I have a hard time believing I'll get to 250GB any time soon.
