This is my current system:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (@2.4ghz)
Nvidia Geforce 7800GTX
1GB DDR3200
80GB 8mb 7200 HDD


Which would offer the biggest performance boost?

Upgrading to 2GB of DDR3200 or upgrading my HDD to a 10,000 RPM Raptor?

Go with the RAM, and stay with good quality RAM. (OCZ, Corsair or Patriot)

I think the better investment now would be the Raptor with 16 mb cache,
1 meg with Xp is ok,,,,2 is better.
When vista comes out if if you will use that pc still then you upgrade the ram to 2 gb then you will still be ok. My.02c

RAM is usually the best way to go. The harddrive will only help with load times where the RAM will help during general game play and load times, expecially in games like battlefield 2.
