I would go with number 1 personally ........
Either 2 or 3 would work. You may be underpitching slightly depending on the size of your starter and gravity of your beer.
You could pitch 1 dry yeast in 5 gallons and then your liquid yeast w/ starter in the other 5 gallons...... This would be cool and you would be able to get an idea which yeast you like or if you can even tell the difference between the two different yeasts.
