I would guess card size might be more of concern here.... I feel 32gb cards are needed for full size RAW files... You could also shoot lossless 14-bit at about 42mb each which would help with smaller cards..... the D800 isn't what I would call a speed camera at 4 fps, but the extra speeds of faster CF/SD cards I'm sure would help buffer clearing times... I have a 32gb 90mb/sec CF card waiting for my D800 to show up.... I believe that is the 600x speeds.... here is a link with several CF cards tested in a D4 for speeds compared to new XQD cards.... 600x cards are as fast as I would spend money on for a D800.... hope this helps:
