Yeah just connect them to the new computer set them as slave and make sure your boot priorities in bios boot to the drive with that computers operating system(the one that came witht the computer) and you can access both drives from window and copy any files you want over to the new computer then put the drive back in the old computer or wipe it and use it for the new one as extra storage.

When you turn on the computer you get the splash screen and details on your PC you should see something allong the lines of press delete (or some other key) to enter bios , tap that key and you should get into bios which is a menu then under one of the menus there should be boot priorities usually in the first couple of menus you might have to look around it varies from bios to bios where it is.
