Well u are going to need a new PSU. And then like the only thing remaining from the compaq will be the case, hdd and cd-rom drive.
I'd still suggest buying a new case too.

So just buy the new parts, take hdd and cd-rom drive out of the compaq and put it all together. Just make sure that the mobo and the CPU have the same socket and that the mobo supports the ram u get.
