Default Cybershot TX20 - What Card Do I Get???

It's been awhile since I've purchased a digital camera and surprised how many choices there are for just a memory card. If someone could help me out with what I need, I'd really appreciate it. I'm not sure if I should get a Class 10 SDXC or Memory Stick PRO HG-Duo HX. I'd like at least a 32GB. I'd like a card that allows me to take pictures fast, meaning when I click the picture button it takes it with no delay. Here are the specs on the camera:

I went with a SanDisk Extreme 64 GB SDXC UHS-I Card 45MB/s. It may be overkill but I think its a fair deal for $70. What do you guys think?
