What are some ways to prevent a desktop computer from being stolen?

Question by Jill Taylor: What are some ways to prevent a desktop computer from being stolen?
My desktop computer has all my financial and personal information on it, and I have had several break-ins in years past. I currently hide the tower of my computer for prevention. Are there any types of locks of devices made to help with this?

nothing will prevent a determined thief from making off with your PC. If it is only the data that is of great importance, consider offsite backups. Dropbox or something like that.
