Assuming you are over 59-1/2 and have free access to the IRA's and that returns on investment are the same, I should think you would want to withdraw from regular savings first (as this reduces your income tax), but the choice between regular and Roth IRA is a pay-me now or pay me later thing. It would depend on your tax rates and advantages to your heirs. Roth gives you more assets longer, and because its tax free, smaller withdrawals are needed for a given net, but you potentially stick your beneficiaries with a large tax bill.
