Here is an article from DxOMark that describes in detail the reason why high megapixel cameras show less noise. It further supports the discussion with data.

http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Publications/DxOMark-Insights/More-pixels-offset-noise!

The article is from 2008 and compares two Canon models. But the methodology and conclusions apply to the D800 and D3x.

I expect that if frame rate is important, the D4 or D400 would be your camera of choice. The D300 series of cameras and predecessors have historically had frame rates just below the flagship models.
