If this is your first electric, I say you buy a fixed bridge (not a floating/tremolo bridge). They're bound to be craptastic at this price range, plus it's a truckload of unnecessary complication.
Do not try them on a high end amp...try it with the amp you're going to buy or (for future) exactly the same on you already have. "You're testing the guitar, not the amp"...crap guitars can sound way better with a pro-level amp :P
That post. Best testing guide I know.
Also, this should help you out quite a bit for knowing what to get, and to verify your choices.
Best of luck.
