K-5iis SD Card

So since I got my K-5iis i've just been using a kinda old 8gb SD, class 2 or something low. Long waits after taken multiple pictures and long waits to look at pictures. So i'm looking to get a new memory card for it. Problem is, I can't find what Class is the best for the K-5iis. There's no use in getting a fast expensive card that makes no difference than a slower card. 32GB would do me fine and be in a good price range for me.

Thanks for the help!

The K-3 maxes out at a write speed just under 30Mb/s, which is higher than base class 10. If you get a card labeled "UHS-I", you'll be sure to get the fastest possible performance.

Here's the card that I recommend:
SanDisk 32GB SDHC Extreme Class 10 UHS-1 Memory SDSDRX3-032G-A21
