87350iroc I have printed my old 6mp D40 at 20x30 and 24x36 many times.  Your 14mp will be just fine for 16x20's. Another reason to hold off on the body upgrade and save for a better body, like the d7000.

I was told in the newbie forum that with the cropping necessary on many images that I'd get better results with higher mega pixels and it does make sense mathematically. I couldn't agree more on the better body but need to spend time learning with tools that will get the job done and the D700 is only 16 MP. (I know... mega pixels shouldn't matter that much to someone who knew what they were doing)

It has nothing to do with being inexperienced.  The 24mp is just as pointless for 16x20's for any skill level.  I don't have anything against higher MP cameras.  I just don't see the point in moving from the 3100 to the 3200.  For your use, it is not an upgrade.  It is wasted money.
