Looking for some new tires

The stock rear tire (Hutchinson Mosquito) on my Giant Iguana is bald and i got 2 flats this passed week with it. I am currently shopping for some new tires. Pricepoint has IRC Mythos XC tires for 24 bucks a pair. I was thinking about geting myself a set of those. How do they perform as a dedicated dirt tires? Should i get them in 26*1.95 or 26*2.1. What would be the difference between those 2 sizes. I also ride a lot on the pavement so i am thinking about geting a dedicated pavement tire. Would the Panaracer High Road V ATB Tire fit the bill for that?

here is alink for it:

The 2.1 will be less likely to flat and you will get improved traction as well.
