If there's only 2 or 3 ICs, vero wins, for me.
I've built tons of stuff on vero.
As a guide, I draw the chips on a piece of paper first with the rest of 
the ckt hanging off.
NOTE: i *ALWAYS* check all adjacent tracks for shorts before powering up.
I have never regretted doing this.
And, last week, for the first time ever, I found a vero style board with a 
track short (very tiny!) straight from the factory.
I use a battery drill to cut the traces.
