I've done some searching, but have not been able to find a difinitive answer... I am currently contibuting to a 401K up to the 6% which my company will match. I would like to put away even more for retirement, and was wondering if I should put more into the 401K or open a Roth IRA? I am 23, and if the Roth makes more sense, then I'd like to open one soon so it will count for the 2000 tax year. It seems to me that being able to draw on the Roth after retirement tax-free would be the way to go, but I could use some suggestions from some more experienced investors.

Thanks in advance,
