it all depends what you plan on using your camera for. the entry level D3000/D3100 are good dslr.
As for D3000 vs. D90 i would spend the money to get the D90 as prices are falling because they are discontinued. if you can get one around $650 then that's a good deal as the D3100 are that price.
I would only go with the D3000 if size is a factor and you really don't plan to shoot much.
I would suggest walking into a bestbuy and play/hold one to see which you would feel comfortable with. Then also pick their brains on the dslr.
Hope this helps
