I know asking the question, "which of these 401K funds should I pick" is not very "foolish" so let me phrase it another way.
My company recently changed 401K plans and administrators so I now have 31 new funds to choose from.

I am 30/yo and my current portfolio (non-401K investments) consists primarily of index funds and some large cap blend funds so overall, about 80% in domestic stocks and the other 20% spread around in other classes and has done very well.

On the whole, I like index funds for obvious reasons and my new plan contains 3 of them, (Calvert Social Index, Armada S&P 500 Index, & Gartmore Mid Market Index) in addition has various bond funds to aggresive foreign funds.

The plan admins tells me they monitor periodially and change out poor performing funds, etc.. but some these other funds have expense rations in execess of 1% and the index funds are ~<.30%.

As a 30yr and my current non-401K asset allocation, do you think picking one of the index funds would be wise? Thoughts?

As always, thanks for your time!
