The field of view crop for the Nikon DX bodies is 1.5x, so you just multiply the mm. Your 120-300mm on a DX body will "look like" a 180-450mm without the TC. With a TC, do that multiplication, too.

The big catch here is probably determining which TC you want to use. The 1.4x will give better image quality and eat only one stop of light but does not "reach" as far as the 2x. However, if you have the new "III" version of Nikon's 2x TC, this might be a good option even though you lose two stops of light.
