Master or Slave? (Flash Question)

I took a flash photography class last night with Elaine, and it illuminated one thing (get it? Illuminated? Ha!) - I need a real flash. Especially for indoor photos. I've known this for awhile; it was actually part of why I wanted to take the Photo II class I was originally going to take this semester. I wanted to learn how to properly use a flash. Now I know a lot more than I did yesterday about using one, about operating my camera in manual mode, about the histogram, about so much more than just using a flash.

 

Yeah, it was a good class.

 

So which one should I get? The Canon Speedlite 580EX which can be a master? Or the Canon Speedlite 430EX which can only be a slave?

 

Help.
