Default [Q] upgrade my android version

HI there, I wonder if you can help me at all. I have a samsung galaxy gt i5700 (it doesn't say spica though, so I don't know whether all the gt i5700 are spica) and I have a very olde version of android, 1.5 cupcake. I would like to upgrade and I was wondering if you can help me at all, here are my questions:
-which version it is advisable to upgrade to?
-could you direct me to a good guide that tells me what to do it (the process, data backup and how to restore the phone in case things go wrong). I had a look on google but to be honest I have found an awful lot of guides that seem a bit dodgy.
-is there anything I need to know before upgrading?

install latest 2.1 if you want to have official firmware. Check google and pm me if you still can't install it.
