It sounds like the "conventional wisdom" on this board would agree with your plan. Take the free match in the 401(k) first.

One thing that came to mind on the MSRP--if your match there is very limited in choice [frequently, these are totally or heavily company stock], you may want to guard against having a very large percentage of your retirement savings in one vehicle. If that is tha case, you may want to go $3K 401(k), $2K Roth IRA, and $5K MSRP.
