The D800 images will certainly tax your computer system and they fill hard drives very fast. Based on the "needs" you described for the backup camera, the D800 should do the job nicely, but it has a slow FPS at Full Frame mode and a relatively low buffer. I am not sure of the FPS and buffer is on the other two cameras, but it might be a consideration on some types of shooting.

I have a D4 and D800 and like the wide range of shooting options you get between the two.
