DA compatable BB???

I'm in need of a new bottom bracket, but would like a cartridge model. I'm running Dura Ace at the moment, and don't like the idea of new cranks. Any suggestions for a bottom bracket that is compatable with splined D/A?

I'd like to find an aftermarket (i.e., not Shimano) unit if possible. Ultegra's the cheap and easy way to do it if there's nothing else out there, though!

ISIS is a standard formed by TA, Stronglight, FSA, Middleburn and a few others to get around Shimanos patent on octalink. So ISIS drive from all these manufacturers is totally cross compatible.
