for example i use nikon just because my first camera was d40x and now i am used to this interface, buttons and everything, and nikon seems little bit more tough than canon, but maybe it's just my personal judgement.

It also really depends on what you are using it for and how you use it.
FullHeads above has given you a link to probably the best site for camera reviews.
When I bought my Nikon D90 I read a review there (I can try to find the link if you need to) that was comparing my model vs. 2 other models in the same class, a Canon camera amongst them. One of the differences was the sharpness of the final image. BUT this applies to the software of the camera and how it is set to adjust the jpeg files. There really was no difference when you compare the raw files.
That is why I told you that it is depends on how you use your camera. I shoot my images always in raw too and then adjust the colors, exposure, etc.
One final advice: As a start, look for a good body of the camera. What you would be changing in time is the lens, and they are what will make the difference. So make sure you have a good basis (the body), that is convenient to use for you, and then you will have room for upgrades

There's a vast array of cheap old Nikon-fit lenses too. I spent Â£15 on an old 75-300mm Sigma AF, which works perfectly well and has made be several hundred squid better off.

I've been looking into purchasing a DSLR camera myself recently. Been doing a ton of research and comparing. What's been said already is all really good advice. The details in Nikon and Canon's cameras differ only slightly in most cases, so it really does come down to what feels right for you. If I were you, I would do some looking and try to narrow down your selection to a few different models, regardless of brand. Then go to a shop where you can get your hands on them. See how they feel. Do the ergonomics of the camera body feel natural? Does the button layout make sense to you? How 'bout the menus? Of course, a lot of that you can get used to over time, but it's still a good idea to try them out before buying one.
Something else to think about: are you going to be using the camera for video? And if so, to what extent? I personally am a big VFX guy, and will be using my DSLR for video a lot. I had narrowed my search down to two models: the Nikon D5100, and the Canon Rebel T3i. Both great cameras at their price point. But the Nikon D5100 doesn't give you full control over your settings in video mode, while the Canon does. For me, that was the tipping point. Just something to think about I guess.
Hope that helps. (:

The difference is YOU: colors can be corrected, sharpnes increased, resolution is not so important. At this tech level every tech spec is almost the same. Improve your lightning, framing, expression skills and you'll (really) improve your photography.
I have to agree with that.
Considering this, you should also inform yourself about lenses.
Because a good camera is nothing without a good lense, and they can (CAN!) be just as expensive.
