Has the 52000 been released yet? :p
I own the D7000, and I own it after 2 months of researching and comparing the D5200 vs the D7000. I wasn't upgrading but simply buying the camera as my first one, so I am not familiar with the benefits you'll get from either camera over your D90 which I understand is a very good camera already.
The costs of the body isn't that much different, which alone is interesting keeping in mind that the D5200 is currently at its "release price" meaning it'll drop over the next 12 months, where as the D7000 will probably be replaced later this year I suspect, so it's price has already dropped.
The D7000 has a bigger pixel pitch (the distanced measured from the centre of one pixel to the next one) which helps to reduce noise in the photo, and this is one of the biggest selling points for me as the noise level at higher ISO's is amazing on the D7000.
the D7000 has a Pentaprism viewfinder, which is more expensive option over the D5200 PentaMirror viewfinder. The Pentaprism is brighter to look at giving you the advantage when using the viewfinder.
The D7000 has two memory card slots, I believe the D5200 has one. This is a very nice feature to have, although I'll have to admit I've not yet filled up my single card because I download my pics to the PC ASAP.
The D5200 does come in a very sexy red, which is different and to some people (me included) being different is a nice thing to have. Also the flexible LCD screen on the back of the D5200 is very handy, and I know this one from the experience of my girlfriends D5100. We've used the screen in a lot of shots, for example when putting the camera over our heads to get a shot over crowds, or when we go low to the ground you can angle the screen upwards, or when you're tight against a wall you can make the screen twist and face the front. This has allowed us to make shots that we would not be able to get with the D7000.
Obviously I'm a bit bias towards the D7000 as I love it, and because I like low light shots (night time) the noise handling is amazing for me. I love the fact that I can change all my options simply with the buttons on the back of the camera to, not having to go into the LCD screen menu options all the time, this alone saves your battery time (btw the D7000 is heavy compared to D5200, but battery last longer to)
Try this site for a comparison :
I have the D90 and I wouldn't recommend upgrading to either of these body's because I really don't think you will see much of a difference , personal I would either wait for the D300 replacement or take the next step to a full frame body like the D600 .
This is of course just what I would do .

I agree with Mark, I just looked up the D90, and it's a nice camera. I don't think that either the D5200 or D7000 is a massive jump for you. Maybe the new D600 is the step that you should be considering, although do a be of research into it, as I did see some reviews expressing concern about the self cleaning not doing a great job, results in "spots" appears pretty rapidly on the CMOS.
I'd be tempted to wait for either the D300s/D7000 replacement if you want to remain with the DX format or look at the D600 if you fancy making the jump to full frame.
I also have the D90 and was looking to upgrade to the 5200 or the 7000. But i have to agree with the other comments apart from the extra pixels i don`t think we would gain much. So i will wait for the time being and see what they bring out next. :)
