I was thinking of getting the Epiphone SG special and repalacing the pick ups and putting a pickguard on it, or should I pay more money and get a G-400 vintage or g-310?
I would stay with the Epi and do the replacement...especially if it's going to be played and not just admired.
get the G 400 without a doubt.

the special sucks like a plastic guitar

you would probably be better off savign and getting a higher quality instrument, as opposed to buying a low end one and adding stuff to it, my cousin once put $200 tires on her crappy car, when she went to trade it in, they would only offer her $150 for the whole car, the reason that applies to this situation is you could end up putting a lot more money into it than its worth

Well that's pretty vague since there's tons of different Seymour Duncan pickups, some of which are great and some are... not so great...

Anyway, a stock G-400 is far better than an upgraded Special, or even an upgraded G-310. The 310 and Special aren't even made of the right wood (let alone the fact they're bolt-on construction, they have inferior tuners, inferior electronics, inferior bridges... you name it).
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

DEFINETLY get the G-400. It's well worth it. Putting good pickups in a really shitty guitar isn't.
