A 741 is power hungry last to use device and even not then. Show us the two data sheets... Yes I have them, but as a padawan you need to know how to answer your own questions.. Explain your project, show the pdf data and you will be guided to which specs are relavent.

Depends on your circuit ! Most times that a 3130 is specified its for its unique capabilities, compared to a 741.
