Upgrade from Nikon D60

I am looking at upgrading my Nikon D60. I have a budget of about £400 but want a camera which offers more. It would be ideal if it was Nikon Camera - as I have investments in Nikon Lenses, flashes etc but I will consider other brands.

D3100 or if deeper pockets D7000

The obvious question is why are you wanting to upgrade, it's difficult to give a meaningful recommendation without knowing what you are wanting from the camera.

Ok, I am wanting a new camera because I would like a better ISO range and a larger range of lenses available. Maybe also more Auto Focus points and live veiw would be nice.
i still have D60. but i do portrait photography. with 35mm lens perfect quality. looking inot full frame D700, but they still tooooo expensive. the new D7000 seems very good aswell.is it worth paying extra to get to D7000, or get D90 and 1 extra lens ???

D7000 seems to have the advantage over the D90 in high ISO perfromance, quicker autofocus, higher FPS and better video. None of these are essential in portrait photography. You could get a nice lens for the difference in price!
