You do need a good water circulation to disperse co2 and fret's all around the tank that large. I use a Eheim Pro II 2028 for filtering and a close loop Mag 5,AM 1000 CO2 Reactor, Hydro 300w Heater and it still was not enough for my 110g tank {60x18x24}
I am changing my set up with Nu-Clear 533,547 filters and I pick up a good use Blue Line 55 HD 1100gph Pump on ebay for $85. and I'm switching my co2 reactor to a Mazzie and will be using a 1inch intake.

IMO: I would go for 10x over. You lose Head Pressure when you add Elbows , Ball Valves, and total feet of PVC or Hoses ect: Even a filter rated for 275gph will lose some head pressure when you add media and when it gets dirty.
