I want to get a at least two more SB-600 to use off camera flash. Is it possible with the Nikon D40x? How do I do it? Do I need other items?
Not sure. Have you checked the manual to see if it can wirelessly trigger the SB-600? I'm guessing it cannot but I'm not certain.

If not, you could certainly do it with radio triggers.
Radio triggers will get you there.
Tough call. You can get 'em cheap (I use these): CowboyStudio NPT-04, 4 Channel Wireless Hot Shoe Flash Trigger Receiver: Camera & Photo

or more expensive (and highly rated I might add):

Paul C. Buff - CyberSync™

Or these (highly rated):

Cactus 4-Channel Wireless Flash Trigger Set V2s - Gadget Infinity

Or if you have cash to blow (the industry "standard" for the pros):

PocketWizard Radio Slaves

It's your call. There are tons more to review at B&H. Just enter "radio slaves" or "radio triggers"

:peacesign: Interfit Strobies STR130 i sync 4 Optical and Infra-Red Trigger, Receiver Set (Black): Camera & PhotoPlus an extra receiver

The reason I went with Radio transmitter/receiver option was because they are more reliable and have greater distance over optical. And the SB-700 has commander mode to control the SB-600 in case I dont need all the radio transmitter/receiver option for the moment.
