Best way to buy SPY for Roth? & Does tax efficiency matter in Roth?

Hi, I am new to this whole retirement arena and am currently torn between trrnx, trrmx, and just purchasing spy by itself. I was wondering what the cheapest way to purchase SDY as part of monthly DCA program, or if i used something like sharebuilder, would I be better if just bought it every other month when my balance hits 768 to reduce my transaction fee. Can I buy SPY directly from AMEX? I have 30until RE and 37 for regular.
was considering lump sum purchase of 150 PRMSX @ 15 in Qualified account. Does tax efficiency matter much in a qualified account?:confused:
