If you are planning on keeping your present machine I would network the two and transfer the files that way. The second machine could then act as a backup.

And if Oxie's suggestion does not appeal or is not practical you could always pop a hard drive into the new computer to transfer the files from it to the new hard drive then pop it back into the old computer when finished.

The cheapest ($0) way, is to temporarily connect the old PC HDD(s) to a spare IDE cable (adjust for master/slave as required) on the new PC. Transfer files from each HDD one at a time.
