The NEW Security Computer
The Security Computer  
This is a total custom build. This is not a kit. I am buying the components separately and from different vendors and assembling the computer at my Build station. The Old Security, Movie, Video, Radio, and Chriss computers were used when I bought them. The MSNBC and Server computers were kits that I assembled this one won't be a kit. That means it will cost more but will be more high end and powerful.
