D3100 would be the cheapest upgrade which is stil very comparable to your previous camera. If you do not need nor want more buttons, better build quality, larger buffer, more FPS the D3100 is perfect for you. You will be able to make movies, take pictures at higher sensitivities, and use some built-in presets that can make life easier.

do what i did and get the d90, i had d40x before

depends what your going to use it for.

d90 is probably about £400-£500 used now,

best option if you could afford it would be d7000

can you give more detail on what type of photography your into and your budget :D

LAKEUK,

What's your budget for your new camera? If you have the money available, I'd recommend stepping up to the Nikon D5100. It adds a vari-angle rotatable display for shooting and composing movies at awkward angles that's much higher resolution, 1080P video at 30 FPS, a 16 MP sensor with improved noise performance for low light, plus a few other benefits such as in camera effects if it matters to you.

Another factor to consider is that the D3100 and D5100 both have very different ergonomics, so you'll have to pick up each one to see which you prefer.

Around the same price point of the D3100 and D5100 is the older D90, which sells for around $730 here in Canada, body alone. You'll have to add another $110 or so to get a kit lens with it. The D90, although its overall image quality is subpar to the D3100 or D5100, had much better ergonomics (ie: dedicated buttons for each control, a top LCD to display settings), a faster frame rate for burst shooting, a larger and brighter viewfinder, etc. The only area where the D90 fails to compete with the D3100 or D5100 would be overall image/video quality, but that doesn't mean that it's a slouch, it still performs excellently.
If you have the money though, definitely go for the D7000. It offers many pro-grade features that the other three don't, and an excellent image quality to match.

Hope that I helped!
