Default Kodak DX6490 or Nikon 5700

Having used Kodak's DC4800 (3x.3mp) for 2 years, I need to upgrade to a better zoom and really quality images. Besides, my 4800 has a numbering problem Kodak can't figure out (but if I load a clean memory card, shoot a shot and delete it, I can then clean off the other filled memory card, reinsert the card with the deleted shot, and not have the camera lose the numbering sequence). Also, my 4800 occasionally will lock up and has to be reset by removing the battery and resetting the date/time. Since I rarely do macro, never print bigger than 8X10, would use Photoshop 7 rather than EasyShare, and would supplement either the Kodak DX6490 or the Nikon 5700 with an external flash, would I be much less happy with the Kodak DX6490 (10X optical), esp. in view of its small jpeg files? Or is the Nikon 5700 (8X optical) so superior in image quality, white balance, autofocus, etc. that its well worth the extra $335. even if it will be discontinued on Valentine's Day :?:
