"How do you configure your memory cards for D800?"

I have just ordered a Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB SDXC card for my D800 (if it ever arrives!) and I was just wondering how others have configured their SD/CF cards for backup, overflow etc?

My intention is to shoot SD card as primary and CF as secondary, simply because SD cards are much cheaper. I will defiantly shoot RAW to primary card but not sure about CF card. I am considering jpeg simply because of the space saving. I think RAW files will be around four times the size of jpeg, therefore I will only need a 16GB CF card not 64GB.

I have never had a card fail, but should it ever happen then at least I will have the jpegs so all will not be lost.

How are you doing it? Or do you have an opinion?
