I use GHS Boomers, .011 gauge, and they're really quite versatile. I can play anything from Metallica to the Smiths on them and it sounds great. But if you do a lot of string bending, I would go for the .009 or .010 gauge.

I wouldnt go for 0.9 gauge... They dont stay in tune and you have to tune them all the time... The lowest gauge you should play is 0.10... I really dont think what strings you use has that much to say but I use Ernie Ball Slinky strings. I think their great ! And if you read at the back of the stringpack you would be surprised to see how many of the great artists that uses them...

How come some strings are really cheap (example Ernie Ball)
i want one that will last me long (but not eight months again)
ill make sure to change it like every 2-3 months or so
i want one that wont break easily
nice sounding

Well, DR's do last a long time and sound good.

I've never used Ernie Ball's though, so they may be great as well.
I would definitely get .010's
