Default Serpentine Belt/Tensioner Pulley Squeak

Good Morning all. Yesterday morning I noticed a squeak from the engine compartment of my truck just after start up. I didn't think much of it because I figured it was just squeaking because it was cold outside. Yesterday afternoon I drove it home and noticed the squeak was still there, just not as noticeable. Then again this morning, it squeaked at start up. I put belt conditioner on the serpentine belt to see if it would calm the noise. It only made it worse and now it's starting to annoy me. My truck as just over 51,000 miles on it. I figure maybe it's just time to change the serpentine belt and tensioner. Does anyone have any recommendations for which brands are better. The Auto Zone here in town has Dayco belts and pulleys. Are these acceptable replacements?
