get a D5100...

Or wait for the D600. D800 is not fir just taking snap shots...BUT

It takes amazing pictures! but uses a lot of memory.

If you shoot in JPEG and doing mostly snap shots, the cheaper Nikons still do an amazing job and will out perform the D200, since the D200 is going on 7 years old now.

BUT, if you want to begin exploration of more than snap shots and have $3,000 to burn and even more on good lenses, then get the D800. And if you have another $4,000, get the Nikkor 24-70 f2.8 and the 70-200 f2.8.
