How do you use 2 Hard drives.

I am a PC noob ok... I have 1TB which I have my operating system several games and files. I just got a 160GB hard drive simply to store a few games on and transfer them from one PC to another. How do I download/transfer steam games on one PC then take out the HDD and put it in my new PC to play those Games

NOTE: When downloading games to put on my PC do I have to complete uninstall them, then download them to the new HDD

    Copy the steam programs folder to the other drive. Place that content into your steam directory on other computer. Right click the game and install; it will search through the existing files and install.

    See option 2. You will do something similar:

    Using Steam's built in Back Up and Restore option might be a little cleaner and lead to more consistent results.
