I'm a new Fool, and I'll be deciding what to do with a new 401K soon. This site, of course, argues that index funds are the way to go, since almost all mututal funds fail to beat the S&P 500. That's compelling. But what I'd really like to know is how Fidelity funds in particular have performed over the long haul. Have 80% of Fidelity funds failed to beat the S&P 500 over a 10-year period, for instance? After all, my choice is between an S&P 500 index (Spartan U.S.) and a Few Fidelity funds, so that's the comparison I need to make.

I'll be glad for any help.
