If i were to buy this antminer, i could set it up at my office with no charge of electricity. But how much data would this pull out of the internet speed? i would like to mine litecoins, how long would it take to get back the investement cost? 6 months?

The internet data transfert is very few : don't worry about that.

But you can't mine LiteCoin with a AntMiner S9 : it is a specialized ASIC, only for Bitcoin.

To reply to your title question : 4 nVidia cards, but not for Bitcoin or LiteCoin, but one or several altcoins to choose as you want.

The easiest and speedest way to begin to mine (la façon la plus simple et la plus rapide pour commencer à miner) : Minergate

Thx for your answers, could you tell me if i would be better of with 1 or 2 quadro K4000 cards? Will a normal motherboard and cpu be sufficient? Is there a guide i can follow to build the rig?

That is right. It is better to get graphics cards.
