lolol, I love the mass of smileys you randomly put at the end. xD

Honestly the best tank set up you could EVER get for youur betta is a 289357 gallon tank with a very powerful filter and a ton of heaters. 8D

But really it all depends on the room and budget you have.

Worst idea is anything smaller than 2.5 gallons for a betta fish. One gallon is fine, but you have a lot of water changes to do.

I can think of a lot of things, but what is your budget/space, anyway?

Like... you don't want to spend too much but have a lot of room?
Not a lot of room but money's not exactly an object?

I agree with BlakbirdxGyarados, but I'm going to add that a tall tank isn't the best one. Bettas get stressed about having to swim a far distance to get food and air, so a horozontal tank is preferred. A more horozontal tank also leaves more room for plants and other decorations for your fish.

^ this

What Dixie said. :D

If you want a filter to help keep the water clear, see if you can adjust the flow of water that comes out of it. If not, you can baffle it.

And always always have a heater in a tank, btw.

This is a really nice tank kit; it's super cheap and a great size for a betta. It only comes with a filter and a hood, so you still need to get a heater, thermometer, decor, and gravel. There are some other good kits out there, but that one definitely seems like the best value.
