Transfering my Gamertag Vs Recovering it?

so i purchased a new slim and i did not get the transfer cord because i really dont need the old games on my new 360 because i dont play any of them anymore and don't have anything saved really. my question is this. should i transfer my gamertag with a usb or memory card to my new 360 or should i just recover it on my new system. if i recovered it would i be able to access my name on both systems or on both hard drives? if not what is the difference between transfering my gamertag vs recovering? what should i do? thanks

Your best solution would be to transfer it via a USB device. Additionally, a valid occurrence of your gamertag may only exist in one location at a time.

If you recover it to another console and then try playing it on your original console, you will most likely get a message that your profile is "out of date" or something and be asked to recover it. As mentioned above, we do suggest that you use a USB device to move your account to other consoles.
