If you decide to replace all of the spokes, strongly consider replacing the rim at the same time.
Over time, spoke tension will cause a hub's spoke holes will elongate, potentially triggering spoke breakage.
Double-butted spokes are a good idea, since spokes generally break at the ends, rather than in the middle.
Always use DT, Wheelsmith, or other high-quality spokes. Anything less is false economy.
