you can use the torrent

or my node:

which offers 100MBit from germany. Make sure you use it as the only node* you are connected to the ensure its the sync node. Zvs might also appear and offer some other IP addresses from different areas.

* IIRC you need to delete peers.dat and start with -listen 0 -connect= -maxconnections=1

If you still have your old pc with the blockchain make sure they are both on the same network/wifi:
Change the conf (or comman line) of the new PC to connect to the old PC:
-connect = #replace the ip with whatever your old pc ip is.
This way the new PC will only connect to the new pc.  It will now only use your LAN/wifi and basically copy over (and verify) the data.
Once you are done you can leave it like that (if you keep your old pc) or remove that settting.
See: for details.

If you still have access to the old PC, you can backup the entire wallet directory and copy it over directly to the new PC. Alternatively, shorena and The 4ner's suggestions are certainly valid. Using a bootstrap.dat torrent and a fast sync node would likely be the fastest way.
