Need a new filter, what should I get?

Ok, so I am setting up a new tank. Its 36" x 16" x 18", 44 US gallon. This tank has to be very, very close to teh wall behind it and will not leave enough room for an aquaclear. That being said, I'm not sure what route to go for filtration.

1) Fluval 4 "Plus" Underwater Filter

2) Fluval 304 External Cani
