Delta desktop computer checked baggage policy?

Question by Useless Knowledge Goddess: Delta desktop computer checked baggage policy?
I’m going across the country for an internship over the summer and am trying to find a good method of taking my desktop computer with me.

I’ve read through Delta’s website and can’t find any information regarding having a desktop computer (a 19.3″ x 17.8″ x 8.3″ desktop tower) put in a suitcase and checked.
Anyone know the policy?

I don’t know the policy but have you considered shipping it via UPS or DHL or Fed-X ?
I have a friend who flies home for Christmas each year and rather than haul a bunch of gifts, she sends them ahead through UPS.
