If you think about it, there's no detail you can show in a JPEG that isn't also in the RAW (but it's very telling that companies who make high-end plug-ins for PS, etc. have "de-JPEG" routines) - do you actually think the down-conversion to JPEG is adding detail the sensor didn't pick up?  So logically the difference is in the processing.

I think it's just better to quit this line of pursuit, as it's pretty clear you don't yet have the skills (or maybe the correct software) to know how to deal with RAW files; in this case JPEG's the best for you based on your current capabilities as well as your preference (as an aside, I'm much like other RAW shooters in that I don't spend more than 2-3 minutes on a RAW file (often less) unless the image warrants a "special project").
