A few points:

Don't get hung up on you memory cards. They are an accessory and getting cheaper. Your D70 uses SD cards and the D300 and D700 CF. Of course a D300s uses both.

Video is there, whether you want it or not. I have 3 DSLR's with video capability and I have yet to use it on any of them. I bought these cameras for their other capabilities.

The D7100 has 51 focus points, not 39, as the D7000 had. It will give you more pixels on the subject than a D700, and you can use your existing DX lenses. The dynamic range improvements over the D300 and D700 are amazing.

You'll pay as much or more for a used D700 than you will for a new D7100.

The D700 is a great camera. I had one. But technology has improved significantly since it's introduction. Right now, a used D700 is the low cost way to get into FX, if that is definitely what you want to do.
