If you are moving box you won't be able to do the "In-Place" upgrade so easily which maintains all your user logins.  You will be doing a "side-by-side" migration.

You are looking more at installing SQL2005 on the new box
Backing up & Restoring the databases to the new box.

If you are working with large data sets then also consider the 64bit Versions, as this has much improved memory management and limits.
