which gunz should I use?

I greatly prefer killa kans. They're just as strong, a lot cheaper, and have better aim. Killa kans w/kustom mega blastas will do a lot more for you than a deff dread.
Still, if you're going to use deff dreads, the best thing to give them are either big shootas and/or scorchas. This keeps them relatively cheap, relatively effective, and a glaring target for your opponent to shoot at, while the rest of the army sneaks up behind him. Just don't give him any other upgrades (except perhaps grot riggers).
"Any job worth doing, is worth doing with a powerklaw."
I second that.
Killa Kanz are beastly! Don't be afraid of their WS 2, they're still hitting as follows:
WS 2 To Hit Chart:
Vs. WS 1 = 3+ To Hit
Vs. WS 2-4 = 4+ To hit
Vs. WS 5+ = 5+ To Hit
That means against most common foes, you're still ripping out a tonne of Str 10 attacks and cannot be wounded in return (once in combat)
Furthermore, depending on the weapons you give to them, you could field 2-3 Kanz for every 1 Deff Dread. I've written a lot about why I love the Kanz so much, but they're in other identical threads. So instead of repeating myself, I'll urge you to search for those threads yourself.
Also check Grax's "Grots Would Be Better..." series. They've been stickied for our viewing convenience, right at the top of the Ork Board. We discussed Dreads vs. Kanz there as well.
All in all, though, Deff Dreads are not bad at all. I still like to field them when I run Walker Bashes. The best set up, I think, is a Big Shoota and Skorcha, giving you the cheapest possible set up for a very effective model.
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.

Skorchas and big shootas, BS2 isn't good for anything else.

You can buy dred CC weapons from GW direct now. Just give the dread extra attacks and RUN in the shooting phase.
Funny how GW sell the only decent configuration for the already single most expensive Ork unit seperately, eh?
Tip would be buy from another site, don't know if I'm allowed to mention names. You can find it at about half price. Then again, problem with Direct Only is that it's Direct Only.

I'm not an advertiser , but try this.
Wayland Games. I was sceptical when I first saw it, but after ordering more than 100 pounds of Orkz, Marines and Tyranids (My friends chipped in for delivery, 10 euros to Spain for anything under 30 kg!), which all arrived within 10 days, all unopened and in perfect condition. I was amazed! (Half expecting an empty box!)
You should check it out.
Fare thee well, anyway.
