It depends what you want to do later! If you buy a couple of wireless cards, then you can use them at a later date to establish a wireless network at home.

If you have a CD-writer, that's probably the most cost effective, as you only need to worry about the cost of the disc(s).

I've never used any of the USB transfer cables.

I have a key fob with 128mb of memory. It's just a little gadget which plugs into a usb port. Handy for transfering files up to 128mb between PCs. For example if I were to email a file from home to work now, when i get to work it might be 11am before the file gets through our national email system. Even then the file may be blocked by the company's firewall. So, I use my sneaky little key fob.
