Setting up Outlook 2010 on a new PC and using PST files from the HDD of a dead PC

To Outlook Experts:
I have a new PC. I have installed my 2010 Office and need to set up Outlook.
I would prefer to have the main inboxes that I had on my old PC. I have two PST files from the old PC. One showed my email, contacts, calendar, etc when it was set up as POP3; another showed it as IMAP.
I was able to set up my account on the new PC as IMAP but the process created a new PST file. I had moved the two PST files that had been recently backed up to an external drive before the old PC crashed to the same location (c:\users\owner\appdata\local\Microsoft\Outlook) on the new PC. I am not sure how to have Outlook look at those PST files.
I would like my Outlook on this new PC to look just like it did on the old one. Is this possible?
