I think the D40 has everything you need. Image quality between the D40 and the D40x/D60 is not going to differ much if at all. They just have basic upgrades like a few more MP and some interface touches. All I'm saying is, you're not really getting a better camera than the D40 with the D40x/D60, and you wont take better pictures with a D40x/D60, so why spend $100-$150 when you can put that money towards a better lens that WILL make a difference in your shooting.
Like I said before though, I suggest you wait it out one more week, and see what both Canon and Nikon have to offer at PMA, that way you know you made the right decision with either, and wont kick yourself in the face when a better entry level camera is announced for a similar price point.
