I'm looking for a little retirement investment advice.

Currently I'm putting retirement money into my 401k at work. I've put enough to get the maximum company match, and now I'm wondering what would be the best avenue in which to continue retirement investing:

1) Up my contributions to my 401k.

2) Contribute money to a Roth IRA until I max out the Roth IRA.

Any feed back is welcome, I bet this is more complex of a question than I'm making it out to be so any addition information that is necessary, I will try to do my best to provide.

Any explanation of the how's and why's would be welcome to, so that I can start to understand the in's and out's.

Thank you.
