I must say that I'm not a big fan of others controlling my money and that the vast majority of mutual funds don't out perform the market when tax is taken into consideration. I constantly read articles about how indexes are awesome because of the low taxes, but I have yet to read an article talking about the great mutual funds for IRAs. In IRAs you don't have to consider taxes so there should be some stand out funds for these purposes...anyone know any that may turely show be great for retirement investing inside an IRA?

Tax efficiency is not the only upside of index funds. One of the other major ones is low fees, which can save you a lot of money over the years. There's also the fact that, out of the thousands of mutual funds out there, there are very few fund managers who can "beat the index."

I would suggest that you post on the "Index Funds" board. Some of those posters can give you much better answer to your question than I, I'm sure.
