As you can see, not a great deal of commission cost for both plans, but which will be more beneficial for my overall return? Driping more frequenly, or less?

Statistically, the answer is neither. There is no significant benefit either way in the long term. The 0.7% savings in commissions is more than offset by the variation in average purchase price.
