The 403(b) would offer tax-deferred growth which isn't what you'd have with a taxable mutual fund account(Now, if the options within the 403(b) are super-stinky this can take away the benefits). Some 403(b)s could have a few options in them if a 403(b) is similar to a 401(k) which I think it is.

There are a few more things to consider with a Roth such as whether the 403(b) changes the deductibility of a Traditional IRA for you along with the other minor differences(No mandatory withdrawal age, access to contributions without penalty) that may also tip some scales.
