IDC 3.0 vs ACR 4.6

Hi All,

I am a newbie to the DSLR world but not to computers, photography or photoshop. I just got my A200 and i've been playing around with taking pictures the last few days.

I am now at a point where I am learning the software and editing RAW images. I've installed IDC 3.0 (update from 2.0) and I have Adobe CS3 which comes with ACR 4.6. I have used both a little bit and right now IDC looks to me like its doing a better job on the images.

My question to you guys is which one is better in your opinion? IDC or ACR? I am considering upgrading to CS4 which comes with ACR 5.3. I am wondering if ACR 5.3 is much better then 4.6 and if 5.3 is better then IDC 3.0? Basically is it worth doing a CS4 upgrade?
