Depends on how much data.
If only a couple of gigs, CD or DVD will work. More than that, I would go for an external HD or Tape backup.

You can also put a big hard disk in the pc and backup all the important data.

What is meant by "storing important data"?
Is this just for the move? or for after?
Is that online storage as in a file server or NAS? or are you talking about stroring as in backup?
For long term and historical storage backup to tape is still the way to go.
