My company offers a 403(b) plan which I can use to invest in mutual funds. However, after reading "The Motley Fool Investment Guide" I believe that I would make a greater return over the long run (20-30 years) through the Foolish Four or Dow Five approach.

Does anyone have an opinion on which is really better given the tax deferment I can receive from the 403(b) plan?

Also, I find it nice (albeit a little mindless) that the 403(b) plan automatically takes my money and invests it at each paycheck. For those of you in the Foolish Four do you set aside the money that you'll invest every 12-months in a separate savings account (or possibly brokerage account)? I was thinking of asking that $100 per paycheck be transferred automatically to my brokerage account and then invest with that amount every 12-months. This way I'll know that I'm saving money with one account and can use the other account for my bills and general expesnes. Does anyone else do this?
