JPEG vs RAW debates can go on "forever", on these forums.  RAW can give us better images, but if you are a JPEG shooter, you can do well also.  I shoot JPEGs and don't like to do a lot of post processing, so I concentrate on getting the best picture I can at the time straight from the camera.  It's just a matter of personal preference.  If you were taking pictures at a once-in-a-lifetime event like of a wedding of a close friend, then you might want to choose RAW + JPEG.  To minimize post processing I chimp a lot and when I can't see the images clearly on the LCD, then I look at the histogram.
