Are you pretty DSLR savvy, or is this your first one? The D80 will take a lot more learning than the D60. If you're willing to learn, it might be a better choice. Also, the battery life is much better on the D80, because it comes with a much beefier battery.
If you're going D60 vs. D80, can you possibly afford a D90? Keep in mind Ebay & Live.com's 25% cashback!
Wont be buying until probably spring, but I wouldn't rule anything out really as long as its under $1000 before extra lenses...
It will be my first DSLR, but I have a lot of experience with standard SLR cameras.
Don't really care about how much learning may have to be done.
Also don't need anything amazing, I am not a professional photographer, I just enjoy doing it as a hobby for myself from time to time.
