Recommend an Exterior Paint for Colorado

I am looking for the best paint to paint the exterior of a house with in Colorado.

Colorado is a dry climate with huge temperature swings and extreme temps.

There can be 60-70 degree temperture swings in a 24 hour period.

Summers can see temps in the triple digits and the Winter can see temps in the sub-zero region.

Also, Colorado has once of the nastiest places for UV radiation exposure.

What would be the best paint for this type of environment?

I think any top-of-the-line exterior alkyd or acrylic exterior paint would stand up well to those conditions.

Sherwin Williams makes paints like Duration and Benjamin Moore makes "Aura", which I know little about. But, with paint you get what you pay for, so consider using Duration (which I understand to be an exterior latex) or see if there's an exterior version of Aura. Or, see if there are alkyd equivalents of Duration or Aura.
