A regular Ethernet cable will work just fine.

Most, if not all ethernet ports/devices are auto sensing. Cross-over cables have not been required for years. So the question is, how old is your old PC and is its technology so old that it needs a cross-over cable.

Pc is about 3 years old. It started out as Vista then was
upgraded to Windows 7 ultimate. It was probably one of the
first gen i7 Processors on the market. It has 6-8 meg of memory
and works well with photoshop which is its primary function.
After 30 years of "you have reinstall the operating system to fix
that problem" -(which should be the last resort to fix any problem I got sick and
tired of this same lame excuse. Thought I would try and Apple and
see if the operating system was more stable. So far so good but need to
re learn many things.

A 3 year old PC certainly has auto sensing ethernet ports.
