just because of your avvy, ill answer your question.

If you have good glass then either body will be good.

If you have ****ty glass, then buy better lenses, it will have more an effect on your image quality then your body does.

akira, you like rise against? minus respect

good glass, i'd say get a d300 just because it is a generation in sensors ahead of the d2whatever. d2 has a more professional build though.

bad glass, buy better glass

I used a d300 this past weekend. Seemed awesome. Unless your making money off photography I see no reason why you should buy something more expensive.
