Overdrive's probbaly more versatile if you're getting a decent amp. The MXR GT-OD is pretty similar to the distortion 3, try it. Not played the OCD, not sure if it works that well as a boost. I guess you need a fair amount of gain, so you should probably be looking at boosting an amp with an OD. So look at the GT-OD and maxon/ibanez tubescreamers among others.

The OCD is considered a mid-gain OD. Probably not what you want.
