Wheel upgrade question

I've had my Trek X-Cal 9 2014, since 2014 and Im looking to get a new wheelset as the wheels that came with it (Bontrager at-850 29inch), well, the back wheel, is becoming a bit of a nightmare, spokes breaking regularly. Could do with getting the whole wheel relaced but feel like a change of wheels is in order.

The only problem is that it has got QR front and back, it's the thin qr's, 5mm not 9 and I'm having a problem finding replacements. Would 9mm qr fit? Can anyone recommend some wheelsets around £2-300? I know I'm not getting light or particularly strong for that money either. I ride mainly xc and a bit of trail.
