The 50 1.8D is indeed a bargain and is capable of very good images. The only weakness is wide open contrast and color are not great. But stop it down to 2.8 and it becomes really really good. The D version is worse wide open than the newer G version but its 1/2 the price. In many respects the 1.8G is better than the 50 1.4G or D.
For a general purpose lens that is not expensive, I would look on Craig's list for the kit lens for the D90, 18-105VR. It has a very versatile range, is sharp, focusing very close and on the long end is an excellent portrait lens with decent bokeh and at the wide end suitable for landscapes. You should be able to find one for $200-250.
The D90 has proven to be one of the most reliable and best sorted out camera at release than any in memory. If it is taking good photos and the flash works, AF works, pronounce it "perfect" and go shooting;>)
