I have my new Ibanez RG sitting here and I have been told to change out the strings because the stock strings suck. Also I have been told to change the pickups out as well.

So anyway these 2 were recommended:
-Ernie ball super slinkys
-Emg humbuckers

I wud usually trust my friend to tell me good worthwhile accessories but since its my NEW guitar were talking about here I figure why not ask UG what they think of these

conclusion: they good at all?

i wouldn't use emg's with a vavlestate head, bad things might happen in the tonal world. What type of music do you play, tunings. And why do you want to change the pups?

I'd at least use the strings for a few weeks to wear them out, and then get whatever type you want. I'm not a fan of Slinkys, I use to use them for a while they were far from great.
Also give you stock hums some time to see how you like them. The general consensus is that stock Ibanez pickups aren't very good, but that doesn't mean you go storming for the clitoris right away, give it some lovin and see how they react. That said I don't really like EMG's either, but you might, it's all preference.

elixer or diadario(spelling?...) for the strings, seymour duncans or dimarzios for the Pups..

I play whatever really. mostly punk and rock

Edit: I heard that Ibanez pups sucked hard thats why i wanna change

some do, some don't.

Ibanez changes pickup vendors more often than a teenage boy changes his underwear.
... oops. lousy example. They change their pickup vendors OFTEN, k? so your pickups might be crap or they might be quite good.
