Obviously the first question you need to ask yourself is, 'Do I
a full frame camera?'
For most of us the answer is 'No'. Until the D3 etc hit the scene everyone was perfectly happy with 'cropped' sensors. But, there was an element out there that kept looking at their old legacy glass and yearned to be able to use them all again without losing a large chunk of the coverage. Nikon (and Canon) then decided to hype this up and give us pro-sumer (with the D700 and D800), and now, entry-level (D600) full-frame cameras.
If you want to blow your pictures up to billboards, then maybe there's some justification to change. If you really need to be able to shoot in awful lighting conditions with acceptable noise levels, maybe you need FX. If not, then I suggest you wait for the D310, or D400, or whatever Nikon decide to call the D300 replacement.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
