    Just install Steam on the other PC and log in using your same login info from your old PC. This will allow you access to any games you had on the old PC on the new one since it's the same account. You'll have to go through an additional confirmation step on the new PC as a security feature (I can't recall what exactly you have to do, but I know it's something simple like confirming your email), but after that confirmation's done you can install any game you had on the old PC onto the new one.

    I'm pretty sure there is an option to make backups.Try that and then restore them after transferring.Otherwise it can be hard to get Steam to add those games to the library.
