Chain/sprocket info needed again...

Cheapness and longevity are paramount. Flashiness and lightness
aren't. I note some of the super-awesome-looking aluminum rear
sprockets are very pricey but are not reputed to last long compared to

Is the D.I.D. 530VM X-ring a good one? How about this CS sprocket?

BTW, how much difference does it REALLY make to swap sprockets with
the chain (even if the current sprockets still look good, square
teeth, etc.)?

Seems to me the chain bushings wear out before the teeth on the
sprockets do... or at least that's been my experience.
