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: [...] 6822145213

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: [...] 6822148697


Samsung SATA II: [...] point%20f3

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

So...which one performs better?

The SATA 6GB would probably win benchmark testing but nothing that you would notice in normal use.
