What width rope will work best with a gri gri?

I'm looking to buy a new rope as my friends are tired of me always borrowing theirs. I pretty much only sport climb and use a gri gri to belay. I find the gri gri jams quite often with wider ropes and was wondering what sizes other people use and if they have the same problem...

I use a 10.3mm rope and it seems to work pretty well with that!
