The Dixit world is a wild and crazy one as many revisions of the game have been released. For an in depth look at what the different versions are, check out this Geeklist: Dixit Product Guide

A quick summary of what to get is:
1. Get a stand alone version of one of the Dixit games so that you have a score track, scoring chits, and 84 base cards. Stand alone versions are found in large square boxes.
2. Get as many expansions as you want to increase the re-playability of the game. Expansions are found in thin rectangular boxes.

Here is a break down of what is available (some are old and can only be found second hand):
Dixit (stand alone) - Multiple different versions - large square box - up to 6 players. Includes 84 cards.
Dixit Quest (originally called Dixit 2 - expansion) - thin rectangular box. Includes 84 cards.
Dixit Odyssey (stand alone) - large square box - up to 12 players (uses weird peg scoring system). Includes 84 cards.
Dixit Odyssey (expansion) - thin rectangular box. Includes 84 cards that are identical to stand alone version.
Dixit Journey (originally called Dixit 3 - expansion) - thin rectangular box. Includes 81 cards.
Dixit Journey (stand alone) - Multiple different versions - large square box - up to 6 players - Includes 81 cards that are identical to expansion version but with 3 new cards added for a total of 84.
Dixit 4 Origins - (expansion) - thin rectangular box. Includes 84 cards.
Dixit 5 Day Dreams - (expansion) - thin rectangular box. Includes 84 cards.
Dixit 6 Memories - (expansion) - thin rectangular box. Includes 84 cards.
Dixit 7 Revelations - (expansion) - thin rectangular box. Includes 84 cards.

Dixit Jinx - Stand alone game that is not compatible with the Dixit Series listed above.

Edit: My families personal favourites for card art are Dixit (stand alone) and Dixit Journey.

Keep in mind that the art is different after Odyssey. If that's something you care about, I recommend getting original Dixit, Dixit Quest, and Odyssey. They're all the same artist, and they all fit perfectly in the Odyssey box. You don't really need more cards than that.
