I go for seperates myself.
Boss OD20 overdrive/distortion
Boss DD3 digital delay
Boss CE3 Chorus
Boss CS3 Compressor/Sustainer
Cry Baby Wah

Be careful........connecting them in the correct order is essential.
The Chorus and distortion pedals should be connected BEFORE the foot volume control so that you can cut the volume WITHOUT loosing the effect. Also the sound wil be affected by which way round you put the compressor and the distortion (but that is a matter of taste )The set up that I use is
