The spread of the AF points on full frame SLRs is smaller than DX. Here's a comparison that is pretty close to realistic. You'll notice that the D800 spread is a bit larger than the D600, but quite a bit smaller than the excellent D300. I've used the D600 and D800 and I find that although the D800 AF point area is not a lot bigger, in practice, it seems much better than the D600's.
