After that, I would say that you need to weigh the value of getting a tax deferral now, and paying ordinary income taxes later, by making unmatched contributions to your 403(b) with limited investment options vs. your desire to invest in investments that aren't available in your 403(b), but having to pay taxes on the income now, with potential capital gains/losses being taxed later.
Any rules of thumb on doing this, or any methodology that would avoid reinventing the wheel?

Also, Stupid Question #47B: does one pay capital gains taxes on investments in an R-IRA?

Thanks a bunch!
