Default 1 fast drive or Multiple slow drives?

I need to bring my MacBookPro with me on a long trip soon and I want to simplify the setup as much as possible.
A) a 2.5" 7200rpm eSata drive(external power supply required), and the eSata express card.
B) a 2.5" 5600rpm FW400 drive, and a 2.5" 5600rpm USB drive. No power supply required.

I have been using setup A for a while but eSata express card is unstable and corrupted my drive a few times already(maybe due to high heat). I am thinking with 2 drives(setup B) the work load is split up, and it should make up for the slower rpm.
Any comment please?

Personally, I think 5600 is still too slow.

Sorry but 5600 just is not going to cut it.
