Default Help with upgrading laptop.

Hey guys.

This is my current config:

HP Pavilion zv6000
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ at 2.0GHz
512MB at PC2700
80 gig HDD at 4200 rpm
ATI Radeon 200m with 128 MB dedicated mem.

I am thinking about upgrading to 2 gigs of ram, 100 gig 7200rpm HDD. Would this greatly increase gaming performance? (I know it isn't a gaming laptop.)

Also, if I decided to upgrade the whole motherboard/cpu/graphics card...would it be possible?

I mainly play World of Warcraft and am considering Battlefield 2 even though I know it would run it decent at best at low settings.

Any advice is appreciated.
