I'm beginning to play songs with half step drop and drop c tuning and it's really causing a huge amount of string buzz!!! I was told to get a heavier string guage, but how much heavier? and will the new tension affect my guitar? btw my guitar is an ibanez rg350dx with a floating temolo. thanks for any help
Get a 10-50 set.

^ Do you know who that is? It's the guitar player from Fall Out Boy.
I generally use either 11s or 12s for standard.. so for drop C I'd go for 13s at least.

edit: dunno what gauge you've got on your guitar now, but if it's comfy for you.. just move up one gauge and you should be fine. One gauge up means you probably won't have to adjust the truss rod either. Intonation shouldn't be a biggy either.
