this is a call for help fellow Fools,

my new company has a 401k, but doesn't match contributions. Would it more beneficial to place my money into an IRA of sorts, or to contribute the maximum allowable to the non-matching 401k? The available Fidelity funds range from Cash Reserves, Stock Selector, Puritan, to Asset Manager, etc..

Here some other information that may be vital to your assistance: I have a stay at home spouse which draws no monetary income (;-) see, I've learned), I have two children, and an income in the low 6 figures. I currently have an IRA as does my wife. My IRA was recently started with a pension plan roll-over.

I'm unsure what additional information I may be leaving out. Any suggestions would be welcome, including additional resources I should read.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
