My question is should I bother to contribute to 401k? Here are the details of my situation:

I can contribute up to 10% of my pre-tax salary (about $3100) into 401k
No employer match
No choice of funds (only bank sponsored plan with 70% equities & 30% bonds--can't get any more details than this besides that the equites are on the conservative side???)
25 yrs old and no retirement in sight

Invest in your 401K AFTER you maximize your ROTH.
