Which 401(k) contribution amount should I select?

My employer matches 100% for up to 3% and the 50% up to 5%. Is it best to limit my contribution to 3% for the 100% match or should I consider the full 5%?

If you can contribute enough to your 401(k) to receive the full employer match, most definitely "Go For It." If you have extra cash flow and would like to invest more for your future, you can direct any additional savings to a Roth IRA. I don't know the full details of your situation, such as age, income, tax situation, cash reserves, retirement savings, other accumulation goals, but you can certainly take advantage of tax-deferred and tax-free growth. Good luck to you!
