3" would most likely be plenty thick (and plenty heavy), but check any benchtop add-ons you might be using, like dogs or vises, to be sure 3" is sufficient. Also consider using the edge of your bench as a clamping surface to hold items to the top. 3" might be a bit thick, so perhaps you might want the outer edges to be a bit thinner.

You really only need super thick if you'll be banging on it or asking it to hold heavy pieces that you'll be shoving your body weight into. If primarily using power tools in tandem with the bench, you could probably go a bit lighter.
