ok i am going to buy a guitar to upgrade from my fender starcaster and I was initially looking for a hss standard fender strat so i could throw in a dirty fingers humbucker and the styles were really not doin it for me and thats a big part of it with me so i was thinking of getting a powerhouse strat but then i found an hss standard squire that has an obey graphic that is awsome looking so i was wondering sicne its about a 100 dollar difference if the quality or the sounds going to be any different because its a squire

Go to guitar center in person or whatever music shop you have around there and try out ALL guitars around your price limit.
my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps

You can be safe in knowing that if you bought a Squier, that hundred bucks you save is coming out of your tone. Even if you'll be replacing the p/u, you'll be dealing with poor quality construction and materials. If you want to upgrade from a Starcaster, I'd go with an American Standard and customize it from there, you'll be saving yourself a lot of trouble.
