I'm really sorry. I don't know what reach means. Is it photographing things far away?

Yes, an FX sensor will give you a much wider shot.  A DX will be cropped.  So a DX @24MP is similar to a cropped 36MP.  So if you shoot a lot of wides you will benefit from an FX sensor...if you shoot a lot of closeups you will benefit from the tighter crop of a DX.  Keep in mind tho, all FX cameras can crop to DX (The D800 has 3 crop modes, while the D600 has 1)
