It depends on the game/software, if the game stores info in the registry, or has some sort of registry that stores pc info, you may need to re-install these games.

Well the games are bioshock 1 and 2 not sure if i am allowed to say this but its pirate copies. Do you Think my old operating system will become a problem? And if i play the games on the new pc will it make files in the other pc?

You "mean" you have "backup" copies.... You should be fine, because the files used to replace the originals usually are made to bypass cd/Dvd check or bypass online/drm protections.

Regarding the OS, if you´re using only 1 HDD you should (not necessarely as you can run them both, sometimes you have problems with using the same Program Files folder, because of the name) use 1 OS, 2 disk 2 OS.

In the future avoid posting things concerning piracy, post like the 1st are ok the 2nd not ok, we dont´want Tom to be in trouble.

Like i said, most probably yes, in the end you need to do the test. If you´re gonna use the old hdd as a 2nd disk, you won´t have a problem, as the old os will still be working in the old pc, and most likely the games will work on the new system, make sure you boot from the new hdd.
