is there any benefits to waiting to amass more money before making a deposit? (Say making a bigger deposit of $300 every three months?)

Do you pay any transaction costs when investing money within the IRA? If the answer is yes, then perhaps waiting to put it in in bigger chunks would be preferred. Otherwise, a montly contribution sounds fine. I think there would be little benefit to putting it in on a more frequent (like weekly) basis.
My suggestion, all other things being equal, would be to put it in on whatever is best for you considering budgeting, pay periods, etc.
