D600 - should I trade my DX lenses and my D300?

I have a D300 and the following lenses (all Nikkor)

DX - 12-24 f/4, 17-55 f/2.8 and 55-200 f/something (all DX AFS)

FX - 20 f/2.8 AIS, 28 f/3.5 Ai, 35 f/2 AFD, 50 f/1.4 AFD, Micro 60 f/2.8 AFS, 85 F/1.4 AFD, 135 f/2.8 AIS and 70-200 f/2.8 AFS VR

I am thinking that DX is inevitable for me as I am not a long distance photographer, and the D600 excites me enormously, and the D400 isn't coming and given the D600 has arrived I would never get one. So the D600 is the body I want, however funds are an issue as of now, so i need to find a cash neutral trade.

It seems to me that if I got rid of my DX lenses, which I may as well as I would never use them on a D600 - methinks I would only ever use DX crop at rugby matches, and even then I'd crop in PP, then I would be quite well covered on FX using only my existing primes.

So the question is do I trade the DX lenses and D300 to cover a D600 (maybe plus the new 28mm f/1.8 if funds allow). I hate to let all that glass go, but it's kind of redundant now anyhow, so why not?
