Upgrade wheels or replacement?

Hi all,

I went out a few days ago on holiday and had to return very quickly as I suddenly lost all drive in my rear wheel. After a inspection at the LBS (in France) they explained in their best possible english that the hub had broken on my wheel. Currently I have Shimano WH-R500 wheelset and they quoted more for the repair than it costs for a new rear wheel. For the use they have had I'm rather disappointed and don't really want to settle for the same again.

Therefore I am looking to seize the opportunity to upgrade from these 'budget' wheels. Anybody have any good upgrade advice and possible candidates for somebody who isn't looking to spend all that much. Even if I have to look to auction sites for them at a cut price I would be happy.

Thanks
