2 seperate arrays vs 1 large array

I have a 5300 dual channel controller in a server with two drive cages that hold 4 18GB drives each. Each cage has a dedicated channel. The array configuration utility by default wants to take both channels and drives and make one large array with 8 drives. If I go the custom route I can make two arrays of 4 drives each each with their own controller.

What configuration is the best for performance?
