This is about the best of the worlds where your old system has died. Especially if the boot drive can be seen in another system, even if you can't boot off it. If the drive can be 'seen' when plugged into another PC, then you can go to that drive letter and start copying data off.

Just be aware that the security settings on the files may prevent you from accessing them if you try to use the drive on a different system using a different account.  If that happens you'll need to use an administrative account and go into the file security settings to "take ownership" of the files - that will allow you to modify their permissions so that you can access them.
