As YOGI said, class 10 - the cost savings for anything lower isn't worth it as you never know what you'll be doing.

Sandisk is probably the very best, period.

I can also recommend Transcend (for SD only) as well as Lexar.

I've used Sandisk for years and years for CF and SD cards as well as USB memory. I have yet to have a problem with one. Some have (gasp!) gone through the washing machine. I've also been using Transcend for SD as well for years. I believe there's a video on youtube of Sandisk being abused.

I just picked up some Sandisk at B&H on sale, you can use this as a reference against other places and brands: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/SanDisk-One-Day-Special/ci/19004/N/4111826621

With the 60D and a class 10 Transcend card, I've shot well over 80 frames without running out of buffer (JPEG) at a time.
