All,

What is the max size of D700 print out that will still show the same quality as that of D600, assuming the same dpi is used in printing the photo.

That depends entirely on the DPI you want.  "Excellent" print quality is usually 300 DPI, but you can get away with a lot less if viewing distance will be larger.

A D700 can print about 15X10" inches at 300 DPI, but a 24X30" would look great still.

A D600 can print about about 13X20" at 300 DPI

Again, you don't need 300 DPI for a good print, especially if there is some distance from the viewer.  I have 32X48" prints from my D600 that are stunningly sharp at even 6-inches away.  I'd be comfortable printing 40X60" if there was a reasonable viewing distance.  There is also up-res software like Genuine Fractals that can help give you an extra edge if you want to print huge.
