Xbox hard drive and Live account roulette

So, currently in my house, we have 3 Xbox Live accounts and 4 Xbox 360 systems.

We have one of the Xbox units that is the primary that I have downloaded and purchased a couple of games.  It has a 250 GB drive in it.  I'd like to swap that with one of our other machines that has a 320 GB drive and then put the 250 GB into that other unit.

Do the game purchases stay with the console or the hard drive that on what is my primary Xbox machine?  I'm hoping if I swap the drives, I can just re-download the game for free onto the 320 GB drive that will be placed into that primary machine.  Thanks!

Downloaded content is tied to the account that purchased it and the console it was purchased on. You can redownload the games on the new hard drive without any issues.
