Ideally you would have backed up the library from your old comupter on a regular basis, and have restored that library to your new computer...
You should be able to:
- Backup the device to the new installation
- Transfer your purchases into a newly authorized library
- Recover any other media using third party tools as suggested in this post
- Restore the device from the backup
This process should switch the association of the device to the new library, preserving the data and settings in your apps.
May also be prudent to attempt a backup to iCloud directly from the device before you start... Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > iCloud Backup > On. It won't save any media but it would preserve the general account settings and documents in case anything goes wrong while you are trying to extract your other data.
When you get it all fixed, make a backup!

Go to iTunes on the new PC, then to the App Store. Click on "Purchased" in the Quick Links section.
Once you get there, all of the apps you've ever downloaded will be listed. You can download them all, or just the ones you want on your new PC.

You're replying to a thread that is over a year old....
Ideally you'd backup and migrate the iTunes library properly when you get a new computer, but if you've failed to do that then Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device explains how to connect your devices to a new library without losing the data and settings which can happen if you simply download the purchases in the way you describe.
