Changing computers

I am about to change my computer and I would be grateful if somebody would advise me on how I can transfer my data from one machine to the other. In my present PC all the data is on one hard drive which does not have the operating system. Can I just transfer the drive to the new computer or do I have to electronically transfer the data?

Many ways!

1.) Plug in your old HD as second HD in your new computer.
2.) If both have a network card you can transfer it via the net.
3.) Use any external media (CD-burner, JAZZ, ZIP, ...)

Are you saying option one is as easy as you describe it and that it is fool proof? I hope so.
