Wish I could tell you more about the D3X and could compare them better, but...

I have a D700 and could not have imagined needing or wanting more, unless I could get the same camera with 3 or 4 times more pixels without giving anything up.

Then I picked up a D800 and I LOVE IT MORE. I love that when I'm at my very best (tripod, cable release, mirror up, good lens), it pays off in stunning detail. But I also like that I have the extra exposure latitude. That's MUCH more significant that I was expecting. It's great.

And I got a really decent movie mode to boot. I actually use it now and again.

And it takes both CF and SD cards.

And I got all this for about the same price as I paid for the D700.

Everyone should be as happy with their camera as I am with mine.
