I feel like shipping would be better and safer if packed correctly.

yes, with usps shipping the insurance is cheap
$10 for $800 worth of insurance

should be under $25 to ship it with insurance
much cheaper and safer than packing an extra bag for flight

be sure to put fragile stickers on it

I would remove the HDD before shipping.

newer hard drives are much more shock tolerant than they used to be

older ones had a 20g limit, most newer ones are over 200g
inside a case with padding (foam edged box)
it will be just fine
having it in your carryon would be worse than in the case shipped
