Both amount to the same number of LED lamps (40)

One row of 4 x 1000Nd should do the job and the hanging rail will be cheaper (as you will only need one) i would reccomend getting the multicontrol 8 if you are going with either set up as this will cut down on the number of plugs you will need to run it (from 4 with no controller to only one with the controller). is the cheapest i have found with super fast delivery.

Hope that helps
Also if you contact TMC they are also most helpfull they answered a lot of my questions very quickly.
