I am going all rash and getting a new computer! Dont want to lose old files so how do I transfer them ?

Get your old hard drive, and put it in the new computer - that way you can transfer what you want quickly.

It's quick and easy, as long as you know what you're doing.

You could link your two computers together using network cards, and transfer the data like that.
Or, if you have a CDRW you can copy the data to CD and then to your new computer.

OR, you could link them using a parallel port cable and the DCC software included with windows.
