IRA's are a great way to go. Lot's of tax advantages... But it does depend on your income level, there are limitations... Also, if you have kid(s) funding a 529 is another tax shelter investment.
Another thing I would look at is funding a life policy... You can give yourself interest free loans....

Lot's of options, but the best advice I would give is talk to SEVERAL financial advisors... There are a lot of things you can do to fund your retirement, and it is a very important decision.

I can't wait to take the money out of my 401k, that way I can start making some money!

I have a company sponsored 401 (k) check being dispersed to me soon too.

I like Fidelity. I will be rolling-over the money to Fidelity. I don't know what type of mutual fund I'll be going with, but I know I'll keep it in a traditional Roth IRA.

You're still young, my suggestion is to go with a more aggressive fund. It's my opinion. I'm not a financial advisor.

I only have like thirty days with this money to re-invest. After that I will have to pay huge fines in the form of taxes.

I left a job once that I had a 401K at and I just cashed out the fund!
What a big mistake!
After taxes, penalties and then income taxes at the end of the year, it cost me 68%!
I would suggest that you roll it over to another account. DON"T cash it out, it will not be worth it!

just my .02 worth!
