MM Cartridge questions

I recently revived my vintage audio gear that I purchased back in 1984 in my college days. Denon DP30Lii with the lightweight straight tonearm and an Ortofon OM10, playing through a Denon DRA350 Tuner/Amp, and B&W DM110 speakers. The stylus on the Ortofon was shot so I put a new 10 on it. Just found some good prices on a 10 hour used Super OM30 and even better deals on Grado Prestige Silver2 and Gold2 cartridges. With a mid level, at best, Turntable that is direct drive, are there gains to be had by spending the extra money? Will the Grado Hum bite me with a direct drive turntable? With the lightweight arm, is an OM or Super OM my best bet?
