Well, My pc is:

Haf 932 case
570 gtx with accelero xtreme plus overclocked to surpass 580gtx stock levels
GA-890XA-UD3 motherboard
8gb ddr3 1333Mhz
Phenom II X4 965 stock @ 3.4 Ghz(with Vigor monsoon II LT heatsink)
Cooler master silent pro 1000watts


And the hard drive is 4 year old Hitachi HDP725032GLA360 SATA:

I feel like it's fast but I do believe the ones I'm gonna mention are faster and are 1tb versions both with 32mb cache, 1 being SATA II(spinpoint f3) and the other one SATA III(seagate).

Seagate SATAIII:

vs

Samsung SATA II:

I did some research in the past and f3 was the king.

So...which one performs better?

Since neither drive will come close to maxing out a SATA II interface (thats 3.0Gbps/375MB/s) the SATA II versus SATA III component is kind of mute in my opinion.

I personally would grab the seagate's only because I've had decent experiences with seagates before and have never owned a samsung.
