Looking for advice on addons for groups + raiding.
I have used Healbot, and decurse, but I get the feeling I'm out of date or perhaps not setting them up well enough. I have seen vids on some players that have color coded layouts, wondered what the thoughts were on the blizz. community.
Thank you all in advance.

Last i checked, DXE wasn't updated for Cata at all anymore.
As for addons,
Grid > all
There are many bad copies of Grid, that try to 'improve' upon the core mechanics of that interface, but just don't do a very good job.
I'd rather have grid, and install only the modules I need for my class, than have an addon that includes every module, for every class preloaded (along with half a dozen other interface features), which would cause the entire addon to malfunction for long periods of time after every minor patch, when a single small portion of the lua file was changed.
Grid/Bar Mod (Bartender)/Unit Frame mod (Shadow unit frame/Xperl)/Any updated Boss Mod
Is really the most you'll ever need.
Vuhdo, shadowed unit frames, and a bossmod. pretty much all you need. IF you have a mouse with a lot of buttons vuhdo will create macros for you, so all you need to do is use your mouse :) pretty nice.
hope this helps. Vuhdo will show a lot of debuffs, where as other addons wont unless you get another addon for it.
Need raidframes: Vuhdo, Grid, Healbot are common options. Healbot is just fine if that's what you're using but you really should learn how to properly set up all of its functions. Using decursive beside it is an exercise in futility
Boss mods: DXE, DBM, BigWigs, Raid Watch 2
Some sort of proc and buff/debuff (and chakra) monitor: PowerAuras, WeakAuras etc.
Castbar of some sort. Don't lose cast time to latency issues: Quartz, Castbars, Gnosis etc.
CD watch: OmniCC, ForteXorcist, Coolline
Announcer of some sort: RSA, Wakespams, Castyeller2, SpeakinSpell
Don't see why people think having a clean UI, or having all these addons will make you a better player. Look @ Paragon's priest. All he plays with is Grid.
So what exactly do you use powerauras for? I know its for procs but how do you set it up for yourself, for a disc priest
