Which is faster/better, a 7200RPM SATA300 or a 10000RPM SATA150?

SATA 300 makes maybe a 0.00001% difference, and that is only because you can read/write to the drive cache faster.

10k RPM on the other hand makes (imho) a big difference, The WD Raptors are excellent drives.

The advantage of SATA300 lies in the use of port multipliers and solid state drives.
