Default High Beam Headlamps

Hello All,
I have a very basic question. I have a 1993 Bonneville SLE; and I purchased a set of the typical eBay "super blue" 5000k low beam and high beam replacement headlamp bulbs. The low beams seem ok; but the high beams are terrible. I have also noted that when I kick on the high beams, the low beams shut down. Is this supposed to happen? Maybe these bulbs are generating too much current or amp draw and that is a protection feature? I never checked them with the OEM Sylvanias too see if it was doing the same thing. Also, if anyone has a set of bulbs that work great, your feedback is much appreciated.... I do a lot of rural night driving. Thanks to all, Dennis
