I am recommended to get a Samsung SpinPoint over WD Caviar Black. I think the main difference is SATA2 vs SATA3. I wonder if SATA3 is bottle necked by the spinning HDD? If so perhaps a SATA2 will be better?

Most mechanical drives can barely saturate SATA2 's throughput. Sata3 is mostly for SSD's. You will be fine with the samsung drive.
