You can't put the P4 into the AMD's motherboard, no. But you might be able to migrate the P4+motherboard (and maybe +RAM as well) from the Dell case into the Compaq. If you end up considering that, also consider that it might be simpler to migrate the components from the Compaq into the Dell's case.
