good external pump for scwd?

I want to set up a closed loop scwd and I was wondering what are some good choices for a pump. Most people seem to use the mag's but if you got any better ideas let me know.

A Gen-X mak 4 pump is 1182 GPH and alot safer to run externally than the mags. Plus it is only $135. So it is close in price to a mag 12.
