Wheel Upgrade Advice

edited May 2013 in Road buying advice
As per title really, I have a 2012 Giant TCR 3 and love it I do. Now, the more I read and the more I ask experienced riders they all say upgrade to a lighter wheel! So I want to but without braking the bank and spending a fortune. I see wheel sets in the classifieds that range from £200-£700 but wondered in my case just to buy new either online or LBS rather than risk being dissapointed.
I thought along these lines ... t-13-46924 as a starter set but keep hearing voices in my head saying go Aero!
Any help or guidance would be brilliant

    Shimano RS80 are nicer wheels in that price region, light, stiff and very comfortable or Mavic Ksyrium Elite {more expensive} if you aren't bothered about extra comfort.

    I find ribble very good for wheels and they were doing 10% off too on top.
