even though its factory made, its still computer parts that were pre-built by a company as opposed to joe smoe building his own, so things can be replaced mixed and matched as long as they're all compatible

since you would need a new mobo, the other parts from your "compaq" may no longer be compatible with this new mobo/processor combo

i already changed the power supply, the processor, to a core 2 duo, that was the best processor i could put on it, but now i want a quad core, added 2 gigs of RAM, now it has 4, but i want more better RAM, and i have a gtx 470 right now, so....

the mobo it has right now is UATX, so if i find another UATX mobo, can i put it in the case with no problem?? i need help finding a suitable mobo, so plz help!!!
i will get better RAM too

yep, if it your current one fits, than a new one of the same type should fit into that case
