What Wheels??

I am looking to purchase a new set of wheels. I need help picking them out. I don't want to break the bank, but don't want the cheapest either. I am 6'3" 210 pound weekend rider (30-100 miles). I ride a 2002 Fuji Newest road bike 700x23 with Shimano 9 speed.
I keep breaking spokes in the set I have. I broke 1 had it replaced, then a 2nd broke so I had them all replaced about a month ago. Now this past weekend I broke 2 more.
I wondering if wheels like Velomax that mount directly into the hub are stronger.
Any help would be great

Thanks

Mavic Ksyrium Elite. I am about 15 pounds heavier than you and LOVE these wheels. I got them in January and have about 3k miles on them as of right now.
