Sounds like you got it about right.The roth is a great deal, because you never have to pay taxes on those earnings in the future.Also, $1000 added to a Roth is equivalent to $1000 * your tax rate added to a traditional 401K, so the $17500 limit allows you to have much more spendable money at retirement. The $1000 put in the Roth costs you more up front, but you get more at the end.What I mean is that if you have 1M in a Roth and in a traditional 401K, at retirement, with the Roth, you get to keep the 1M. With traditional, you get to pay taxes on that money.
