You can use any disc brake rear hub. Given the way costs work out, you're better off price wise buying a complete rear wheel from a decent source, than just the hub then a rebuild of your rim and spokes onto it.
There's a vast number of choices, so it boils down to a question of price/quality.
BTW- before spending serious dough on a new wheel, have someone check your hub. Many of these kinds of skipping issues are easily fixed fairly simply and at very little cost. Also be sure the skipping is in the hub, and not chain/cassette or otherwise drivetrain related. It would be a same if you spent $100+ on a new rear wheel only to find that your cassette had a bent tooth.
