    Looking to build another computer for my business before the season starts and could use some help.



    1) What will you be doing with this PC? Small business computer that will run a point of sale and 4 HD security cameras.
    2) What's your budget? $500-600 with shipping and tax.
    3) Which country do you live in? US PA.
    4) What exact parts do you need for that budget? CPU, RAM, case, hard drives, PSU,
    5) If reusing any parts, what parts will you be reusing? Case which is a Corsair, Monitor, mouse, keyboard.
    6) Will you be overclocking? No.
    7) What is the max resolution of your monitor? 1080p.
    8) When do you plan on building/buying the PC? ASAP
    9) What features do you need in a motherboard? RAID? Firewire? Crossfire or SLI support? USB 3.0? SATA 6Gb/s? eSATA? Onboard video (as a backup or main GPU)? UEFI? Great question. this computer will basically just be running our POS and security cameras/software. Data loss is a big concern so anything that can help with that would be great.
    10) Do you already have a legit and reusable/transferable OS key/license? If yes, what OS? Is it 32bit or 64bit? Yes, Windows 10 64.

    I strongly suggest that you don’t run POS and security on the same box.
