Recommend a type of strings!

I play tennis about 3 times a week, I'd say I'm a little better than your average 19 year-old. I have big ground strokes, but I also like to volley and use my slice (typically, though, I have a two-handed backhand). I can get lazy, though, and miss big shots because my footing was wrong. I move, I just don't have the best footwork because I've never really been coached.

Anyway, right now I play with Gamma Synthetic Gut 16. I find it lasts about a month (playing 2-3 matches a week). I like it because it lasts a while, only costs $5, and best of all it breaks instead of losing tension. I hate the string that lasts for months and just gets loser and loser till you're forced to cut it anyway. I'd rather have my strings just break. I string myself, though, so perhaps if I had to take it somewhere I'd feel differently . I like these strings, but I'm trying to venture out and try some different kinds because I feel like I could find something better.

Anyone have any recommendations? I'm trying to stay under $10 a racket. I'd prefer some non-Gamma suggestions, as all I've ever used is Gamma and I'd like to try a different brand. Basically, I want to experiment with strings to suit my game, but I don't know where to start
