Which wheels?

I'm pretty new to cycling so I need some help with wheel selection. What is a moderately priced wheel set for a 180 lb rider who doesn't race but loves challenging myself in centuries and other group rides? Thanks in advance.

What is your criteria for wheels? Light? Able to handle rough roads? Durability? 700C? (I'm just interested in recommendations because I'd like to shed some weight off my bike.)
