Can I add my old SATA drive to my new computer and transfer the data from the old drive to the new one?

Yes, you can.
If you are looking just to move documents:

Turn off Computer
Disconnect Power
Connect SATA drive to new computer with SATA Cable and SATA Power
Power up computer
Vista should automatically install drivers and detect drive

You can then browse the files, and transfer them to your new HDD!

Happy Computing!
