Do you want them to connect to the net too?
A router is the easiest - connect the PCs to it and it will take care of addressing and everything.
A Switch is 2nd easiest - connect the PCs to it. Set each to a static IP address and the other stuff that goes along with it
A Cross over cable - Basically the same as a switch except its just 1 wire but the settings inside the PCs would be the same as with a switch
Beyond getting them connected in one of those three ways, it would depend on what game(s) you plan on playing as to what else would need to be done.
Hope this helps
