Depending on the size, a 5400RPM drive can be quite a bit slower than a 7200RPM drive. The disk is almost always a bottleneck, but other parts of the system can determine how much. I guess the best place to start is as Maguscreed suggested - what is the HDD score you currently have, and perhaps running a few additional tests (like HDTach) to get more info would be useful to give you more of an accurate answer.
