Are Cannondale parts interchangeable from F8 to other frames?

I have a Cannondale F8 and want a full suspension bike, i dont have 2-3,000 to spend on a good full suspension but noticed i can get frames off ebay and other sites for around 1000 or less. Does anyone know if there will be a problem switching all the components of an F8 to either a Rize, Rush, Scalpel, or Jekyll frame. And if possible even a different company such as Gary fisher, GT, or any other expensive full suspension bike frames

I was looking in particular at the Rush series but noticed they all have the lefty suspension would it be a problem to transfer everything over, The only problem i think id run into is the crank, and the disc breaks cause those look like the only things that are noticeably different

Well, for around that price, you can easily get a few of those bikes on eBay or Craigslist. And with much better parts than what are on your F8. I just saw an '09 Rize 5 on eBay end at $1,225.
