Default 2000 3.0 Serp Belt

I know I will be replacing the Idler and belt in the next week or so. But I dont know if I should try Dayco or try the new Goodyear Gatorback belt. So I brought it here to get some ideas.

I would go with the original Motorcraft part, however the Gatorback is fine. I believe its a little more than the Motorcraft if not the same. You got a little noise or something from the engine drive belt area?
