Depends on what kind of music you like. If you want to play HEAVY music,
then a Strat isn't going to do it for you....especially a cheapo one.

It general, If you want fat heavy sounds, you want something with humbuckers.
If you're more into clean bluesy, get something with single coils. Some guitars have both.

Some guitars to look into:

Washburn Idol, WI64
Washburn X30
Schecter Omen 6
Ibanez RG370DX (and 350DX)
I used to be a necropheliac who was into sadomasochistic bestiality...

...'til I realized I was just beating a
dead horse.

well yeah it depends on what you want to play.

but all around you cant go wrong with the epiphone les paul standard or fender standard strat

The Les Paul is a great choice as in getting a versatile guitar which sounds good whatever you play. I can easily push out some jazz, blues or metal from my LP.
I'd say that the Epiphone LP (almost any model really, I found the LP Special to play really nice, and it's pretty cheap) is probably the best first guitar you can get. However, many people don't think so.

As for pure metal, go with a Schecter, their bottom line "low end" guitars are much better than any of the beginner strats on the market, with the exception of a few brands that actually can make good quality guitars (we rarely see one of these guitars on the Swedish market however, as everything is Yamaha, Squier and Behringer these days).

Fender Stratocaster Standard, because the sunburst epi LPs are 499.
