The D800 beats the D600 in resolution and high ISO and also DR.

I don't think it's fair to say it beats it in DR:

The .2EV advantage of the D800 at iso100 is within DXO's error margins (you can see some jitteryness to the lines as the D600 jumps slightly ahead at iso 200).  For all practical purposes the cameras are equivalent in DR.  It's much the same case for iso as well (D600 actually pulls a little ahead in terms of DR) but the D800 does retain details a little better due to its higher resolution.

There are plenty of reasons to choose a D800 over a D600 (which you did a good job listing) but I think plainly saying "better DR and high iso" isn't really one of them.
