Choosing between mtt and cash is really a choice you should make based on the entertainment value. I hate playing mtts and I love playing cash, so there's no doubt whatsoever for me, even if I was profitable at mtts and a loser at cash.
Aside from the entertainment, cash games have significantly less variance than MTTs, so you'll be able to figure out reasonably soon if you're winning at those games or not. Just be aware that cash and mtt strategy differ considerably. If you're not used to play 100 big blinds deep or more, you're in for a lot of learning before you can start earning.
