get a better guitar first, then invest in a big muff. Better guitar will be much better for your sound then a super pedal.
The simpleton's rig:
Fender Roadhouse Stratocaster
Homemade Fuzz pedal "the chainsaw"
Peavey Valveking 212.

A new amp would serve you better than a distortion pedal. I've plated the 30W version, and the GXT series seems alright as far as SS practise amps go, but a pedal won't sound much better than the amp's built in distortion.

what if you have a thousand dollar razorback with a 15 watt amp and want to play 80's metal with some death metal and any metal and hard rock.
Budget $100

Check out the Sans Amp Tri A.C. its got Fender, Marshall and Mesa amp emulators and you can have 3 presets with 3 different switches. Its really cool, I used to have one so I could get a good mesa sound out of my old amp. The only reason I sold it was that i finally got a mesa. Its very versatile and will be able to get you close to whatever you want, plus it is an all analog circuit so it sounds pretty good.

New amp > new guitar > new effects if low budget.
No experience with the Sans Amp, but the Roland Cube line is pretty good for your budget.
