I think that most people will benefit from first fully funding the Roth, since you get to choose what to put in the account. Of course if you need the tax deduction now, you'd have to choose the 403B.

The long-term tax advantages of Roth/403B are almost the same. The exception is because with a Roth, you pay taxes before you put the money in, and with the 403B you pay taxes after you take the money out. Thus If you expect your tax rate to go up, favor the Roth; If you expect your tax break to go down, favor the 403B.
