Can you help me find a new BB for my TiAero?

I have play in my BB bearings and a click on every revolution, so I'm going to replace them. I'm having trouble determining what part I need to buy.  
 
The BB is a FSA Mega EXO.  It's 44mm OD and it says ø24 mm on the side.  24 mm is the spindle size?  
(Please pardon my dirty bike. I just returned from a rainy tour.)

 
The cranks are FSA SLK carbon triple. 

 
 
I'm guessing it's English Threaded (BSA?) and 68mm.  Yes?  
Will this part work?  It doesn't say what spindle size.

Is there another brand I should consider? 
Maybe this Shimano Dura Ace: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/shimano-dura-ace-r9100-bottom-bracket/rp-prod148213 
or this Ultegra: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/shimano-ultegra-6800-bottom-bracket/rp-prod108701

68mm, english thread, 24mm spindle, Mega Exo. Model FSA BB 8681 is the right model for the Carbon cranks, but getting harder to get. However, there are others with the same size spec available.

Model FSA BB 8681 is the right model for the Carbon cranks,

Thanks!  
After this post, I continued searching and learning and was almost ready to buy that very item.  Thank you.  
You are right, it is hard to find. I had to order from a store in the UK.

I installed one of these on myCA2.

Gary,
What color did you get? If the blue one, how closely does it match the Bacchetta blue frame color? If it is not real close I am thinking black might look better on a Bacchetta Carbon Aero.

Don,
I got the blue one.  It is a darker blue but I think it looks good.  
Black would also be a good choice.  It would blend in nice with carbon cranks
