Advice please - Chainset

My FSA 50/34 chainset has what appear to be worn down teeth. The chain comes off every couple of days despite the limiter being set so that I can just about change back onto the large chainring so I'm assuming this wear is causing the chain to slip.

So I'm looking at a new chainset and as the rest of my bike is largely fitted out with Shimano 105 I'm looking to get one of these. Evans do a 53/39 so my questions are: is the difference in sizes enough to make me struggle? I regular use top gear at the mo to get above 30mph on flat. I rarely use my lowest gear if at all.

Is the 105 chainring any good? The FSA has only lasted about 18 months.

Ah Ian, have you seen any of my comments about being cackhanded :wacko: if I bought one of those I'd think it was a doorstop! Bike's booked into Evans on Weds I can probably struggle through till then!

Thanks for looking though!
