The only real difference is what you see in the viewfinder. A DX camera will shows you the whole (or close to the whole depending on the camera) field of view that will be captured and nothing else - it will be bigger and therefore easier to see. On an FX camera in DX crop mode you will see a box in the viewfinder that outlines the area that will be captured and the area outside the box that will not - the central area that will be captured will appear smaller and perhaps harder to see in some cases.

In both cases there is a 1.5x crop factor engaged and you end up with an image that contains a field of view of 1.5 x focal length.
