What size (gph) power head for 65 gallon

I have a 65 gallon with a sump type filter system. i want to add a couple of power heads for more water circulation. Any suggestions of size and brand?

most here will say to go with maxi-jets !! but id say a tank with out power heads is alot better looking than with them and its easy enough to add a pump just to move water!!

I have a mag drive 7 (700 gph) on my sump now, it just does not seem to provide a lot of water movement. Are you suggesting going to a larger pump on the sump rather than adding the power heads?
