    New Computer, how to transfer programs?

    Good Morning,

    Just bought me a new gaming rig yesterday, and my question is, what is the best way to transfer all my gaming files/ programs over to new rig? I am hoping i don't have to re d/l all of WOW?

    (New computer) iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme NE741i Desktop PC - Newegg.com

    Thanks

    Wow can be safely copy pasted to my knowledge, some other programs may require you to reinstall them though.

    Everything regarding WoW is inside its dedicated folder. Just move it to your new comp, or if you already installed your old hard drive in the new machine, just start it there.
    Your just need to recreate a new shortcut to the wow executables, either Wow.exe or Wow-64.exe
    Your personal files are in the WTF subfolder of the WoW install.
    Enjoy your new machine!

    Depends what OS you use, but any old save games can be saved. Some games have their own "path" like Baldur's Gate for example is:
    C: - Users - My Name - AppData - Local - VirtualStore - Program Files (x86) - GOG.com - Baldurs Gate - Save

    Usually in C:/users/"your account name"/my documents

    Honestly, it would probably just be easier to install them fresh in case there are any dependencies (like registry, .net, etc).
