    When using adwords keyword tool, do I want a keyword with a high or low competition score, given...

    that this represents the level of advertiser competition, not website...?

    you should definitely look for Low Competition keywords, as well as they must have a considerably high monthly visits.

    Too low competition and too low visits is not good, whereas, high competition and high visits keyword is good but fairly hard to rank your website for those keywords. But, if you do, nothing like it, and you should also know, such keywords require constant link building. if you stop building links, the rankings will begin to fall.

    That competition is between advertisers, so the bigger the competition the bigger is the potential payout you can have from clicks coming from that kind of keywords.

    If you are using Google keyword tool for adwords then the lowest competition ratio to traffic is desirable. On the other hand if you are using the tool for SEO the competition bar is irrelevant if you are looking at the ease of ranking for that keyword, but a high competition bar will sometimes yield a greater payout.
