When is a good time to upgrade to a full frame, and is it even necessary?

Is going from DX to FX necessary? It is to some people. It isn't to others. IMO it may be necessary for pros. It isn't for me. I'm an amateur, and I'm very satisfied with my DX Nikons. I don't see a need to spend a lot of money for an FX camera when there much less expensive are DX Nikons that more than fill my needs. But what's good for me may or may not be good for you.

When is a good time to switch to FX? Only when you are certain that FX is sufficiently better than DX to warrant the cost.
