From my understanding, the HDMI Black Level on Samsung tv's is as follows:

Low: 16-235 (limited)
Normal: 0-255 (rgb)

I did a comparison. I set the PS3 to Limited and the black level to low. Then I set the PS3 to RGB Full and the Samsung black level to normal.

The picture looks basically the same to me on both configurations. Which is the preferred setting to use? What setting is best for Games and Blu Rays, since i use the ps3 as a blu ray player?

I would go with RGB / HDMI normal so you get the full spectrum for games. Otherwise some games will look washed out.

Properly implemented in the console, TV and game, it should basically look identical, as long as the settings are aligned. Problem is its not always properly implemented.

16-235 is the standard for TVs, it's the safer choice.
