TeX (and LaTeX) by themselves are all you'll need to achieve a better  
presentation than with any other typesetting system.

That said, the amsmath package fixes some spacing glitches in LaTeX,  
and if you want even more fine-tuning, in my opinion the mathtools  
package by Morten Høgholm is all you need.
