Here's a great calculator on Charles Schwab's website:

http://scrs.schwab.com/tools/schwab_roth_401k_calc.htm

As the attached website details, there is the added benefit with qualified distributions from the Roth 401(k) being tax free and resulting higher retirement income.

I'm in a similar situation as yourself. And with the likelihood that income taxes being higher in the future for us in retirement, I'm splitting my contributions between Traditional 401(k) and Roth 401(k).

Good Luck !!
