I recently purchased a new computer. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how I can transfer the information (files, games, etc.) from the old one to the new one?

I would suggest putting the old hard drive in the new computer and using it as the secondary. You can run off that drive unless the OS is completely different.

There is a program called AlohaBob (about $45, including a parallel cable) that lets you transfer pretty much everything from one computer to another. I have used it, and had no problem.

It depends on what you want the end result to be. Are you completely getting rid of the old pc? Are you keeping it? Do you want to start up a small home network? I think if you don't stop with your first question and keep probing, then you will find a better answer for your personal needs.
