ADA 120p filter?

I'm getting my dream tank (hooray!) and need to decide on a filter.

Choices are:
Eheim 2075
Eheim 2075 x2
Eheim 2078
Eheim 2080

I will be doing an hc carpet and community tank, and want as much flow as possible (without adding an ugly powerhead) to keep things clean on the surface of the substrate.

I've seen pics of people running 2 identical filters on the same tank. For almost the same price i can get two 2075s vs one 2080. What would be better? Does this double the flow or just distribute the flow better? Is it best to run both outlets on the same side or opposing?

Thank you!
