D90 vs D5100 vs D3200?

A little back ground first. This question is a follow up to a question I had on the Nikon Lens forum. I was asking about a new telephoto lens, but several people suggested I'd be better served getting a new camera body, in place of my current D40.

Some suggested getting a refurbished D90 which was close to my $500 budget.

Well, I found a new D90 and a new D5100 within a very slightly stretched budget (under $550).

One of the best features of the D90, that I see, is it has an internal motor drive so other than AF-S lenses can be used.

An obvious plus for the D5100 is the larger MP.

What say you? Any suggestions here on whether to get a new D90 or a new D5100?

Thanks for any advice.
