<<If your 457 plan involves employer matching, you will definitely want to contribute enough to max the match. After that it depends on performance. But usually maxing Roth is second choice, and maxing 457 beyond employer match is third. >>

Agree with the matching part, BUT, I'd do the Roth IRA first. When you withdraw that money, it will be tax free and all clear. When you take money out of the other, taxes will be owed. I know, I know, you pay taxes on the Roth before it goes in, BUT, you still come out ahead in the long run. Besides, the Roth has transferablity to others.
