Prospective D800 Owner Seeks Lens Advice

I've researched 'til I'm dizzy the past six months preparing to leap from my D300 i've used the past four years to D800e.

Current non-dx lens mix includes: Nikkon 28mm, Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 70-300mm VR.

Two options I'm considering:

One: Add to the above lens mix a Sigma 35mm "art" lens, a Nikon 24mm wide angle, and the Nikon 85mm.

Two: Add a Tamron 24-70mm to the existing lens mix.

Sure, I'd like to get them all, but I'm not a Rockefeller}

One other question. I have the Sigma 10-20mm DX. I understand you can shift into DX mode with the D800e. Will that produce appreciably greater captures using the Sigma than I am getting now with the D300?

I really appreciate your help on this. those of you in the trenches with the D800 for some time I'm sure can provide me invaluable a dive.
