D800.

The FX sensor will be more suited to low light, also easier to get a fast wide lens for it too. 20mm will be 20mm.

I am leaning toward the D800, but wondering why is the FX more suited for low light?
I currently use a.few FX Lens on my D90 and they perform very well with the DX Sensor, but would like the full frame.
Thanks for your input

The larger sensor of the full frame body should give maybe a couple of stops advantage over the DX type when using high ISO's.

That said, I'm sure you would find the image quality of the D7100 far superior to the D90's. For that I'd recommmend the D7100. All the money saved would buy you a nice lens to go with it, like a Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4. That would be perfectly suited to the D7100.
