Windows 7 PC becomes very slow on heavy copy

My PC configuration: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 MHz, 3 GB RAM, Hitachi 160 GB + Samsung 320 GB HDD, Asus P5B-VM Motherboard. I was using Windows XP Profession on Hitachi HDD for 2 years. Found no problem when copying gigabytes of data in Hitachi hard disk from one place to another. I've recently started using Windows 7 Ultimate in newly bought Samsung HDD (model: HD322HJ). Now my PC becomes almost unusable when heavy copying occured. Any idea why this could happen? Both of my HDD's are SATA 3.0, 3 Gb/s speed. The new Samsung HDD is 7200 RPM which is greater than Hitachi's.

"Defrag both drives, star using alternative copy manager (ex. Total Commander, TeraCopy).

Scan both drives with HD Tune (check overall health), check transfers."
