I'm going to build a new computer. Ny old computer has an Intel MOBO and CPU. The new one is going to be a AMD CPU and a ASUS MOBO. Can I take the SSD with Windows 10 Pro on it and just switch it to the new computer to avoid having to put everything back on and so I dont have to install Windows on another SSD because I had to clone the one on the SSD from a HDD because Windows wouldn't install to the SSD.

Unlikely.
A fresh install is strongly recommended, usually required.
