You didn't say what type of Strat you had, but obviously, if you want to add a humbucker, it's not stock, or is it a FatStrat?
You also didn't say what type of sound your looking to create, or what style of music you play.
Anyway, the DiMarzio Super Distortion boosts the midrange of your guitar (to me it's very 70s sounding) so you should consider if this is the sound your after. In a Strat, I would think the Super Distortion would give a tone with alot of upper-mid character, with decent high end, while sacrificing low end response. But again, you didn't say what tone your after, or what other gear your running your Strat into.
