I like the Dimarzio's better.

But thats just my opinion.

What amp are you using?

The Roland Cubes are nice.

I would use the Dimarzio's still

I've used them for 6 years and I enjoy the hell outa them

However it's important to remember that most of the sound comes from your amp.

If that's all the 'upgrading' you're goin gto do to your amp then don't bother with new pups at all, you won't notice the difference, onyl switch out pups when you have a good amp (ie not a modeler).

If you get a half decent guitar you probably wont need to switch, you should put more money into getting a nice amp. I mean, i know you are happy with modeling amps but tube practice amp or a nice big solid state isn't too far off.

1: There's nothing wrong with modeling amps, but that's what they do, they model, they're never going to be as good as the originals they're based on, and I can guarantee that you only think modelers are so good because you've never cranked a good tube amp and just played, because that is an incomparable experience.

2: Modelers and pedals aren't the only tools for tone, the key is finding the right amp, try and find out what brand and possibly model of amp your favorite guitarist uses and see if you can try something similar.
