No, the plugs are not a fire hazard. Trying to fit it into the wrong type
of socket will probably be fruitless and if successfull almost certainly
would be a fire hazard ;-) Just cut it off and fit the correct one if you
feel competant to do so, otherwise just buy a local power lead with the
correct plug on it..
Ah...just checked the cappuccino site. If that's the type of PC you are
thinking of importing from UK to USA you'll almost certainly have to
source an external PSU locally. The "power bricks" those things use are
not usually switchable between differing local mains supplies.
Another point. Bear in mind any customs duties on import of goods as well
as any local sales taxes. I generally find that US prices are lower than
UK prices so importing from UK to USA + taxes may make this prohibitively
expensive compared with buying locally.
