Total return is what matters. Dividends are taxed every year while stock price appreciation is not taxed until you sell. Assuming you are talking about a taxable account.

VTI

VYM, VNQ, SCHD, SCHH, SCHY

Assuming you are aware of the tax implications of dividends and accounts to hold them under. They can be useful but generally total return is lower than a VTI or SCHB.
