I'm afraid that is not really the case.

The relationship that matters in this context is between the pixel dimensions of your image and the print size you want. A 12MP image will give you the same print resolution whether it was captured on a DX or FX sensor.

Where the FX sensor scores is that, for a given pixel count each photosite will be larger, with benefits to things like dynamic range, noise and tone/colour rendition. Put another way, a 10.5MP DX camera using the same sensor technology and firmware as a D600 (if such a device existed) would give identical image quality.
