Default PC to PC via USB cable?

Can you do this? I would assume it's quicker than going over the network. I just built a new PC and would like to transfer some of my old files.

Is it just a cable? If so, no.

But there is one that my friend had that had electronics in it that works.

10/100 wired network will be faster though.

What you are looking for is a cross-over cable.
