I believe the best card would be 280X (much cheaper than 290X) Cheesy

Of course if you want to dig faster then recommend lightcoin if he wants to dig Bitcoin then recommend more of these graphicsconnected, such as is in the picture..

Agree.

I use R9 270x and I'm satisfied (with respect to consumption and noise level).

The Gigabyte HD7950 WF3 offers great value for money, they provide a decent hashrate while consuming minimal power.  If you are unable to source the HD7950 I would recommend the Asus R9 280X DirectCU II, while this card consumes more power, it is able to produce an impressive 820 KH/s whilst mining Scrypt coins.

Make sure you get AMD. as you can see on the hardware comparison chart Nvidia Does compare.
Good Luck

First of all, AMD cards are superior when it comes to mining compared to Nvidia's cards. And if you choose AMD, which I think you should, I'd recommend R9 280X. I haven't had any personal experience with it but it seems to be the most popular card for scrypt mining.
