Yes windows easy transfer is a good. Get an external USB drive and use Easy transfer to backup the settings and data then plug the drive into the new system to restore it.

i do it myself
as a preliminary step, i gather all documents and files in my documents (make a folder for outlook, or IE favorites, or such if needed)
when all is in there, i simply copy the contents  of my documents to an external disk, or flash drive
then i connect this drive to the new pc, and copy it back in place
the only thing left is to import files for outlook, IE favorites, etc..
and then, at least i know what i copied
