    I like to tune the 3 highest strings on my 6 string D G B and use that for chords, currently I use standard guage nickel round wounds, would any kind of string be better for the job?

    Yes low tension strings, and use the tension charts to design a custom set of singles with tension falling slightly and steadily from low to high, keeps the lows tight but the highs easy to chord. No manufacturer sells such inverse tension sets, yet (Kalium strings might in future). I would start with your favourite B and E gauges then choose each next higher string to be slightly looser.
