Depends entirely on your build. Open your stat screen and see which elemental attack modifier is higher, then make your weapon that type. Except for fire, since the Flame Weapon spell itself is kind of weak and fire defense is on pretty much everything.

If the weapon you're thinking of infusing already does elemental damage even while uninfused, first check to see if you can use a resin on it (about half of them can). Naturally elemental weapons get far less of a boost from buff spells than normal weapons do, but they still get the same boost from resins. However, you can't use a resin on anything that's been infused with magic, lightning, fire, dark, bleed, or poison. So if it is compatible with resins, you'll always get more damage leaving it uninfused and just using a resin on it. Unless you don't like resins for some reason.

That's really all there is to it.
