Question Need advice on a built.

Not open for further replies.


Nov 5, 2014
Hello everyone, I am looking to build a pc for my shop which can run an epos software on windows 10 and run basic Microsoft office word. Epos software doesn't require that much power as its currently run on an old dell desktop (thinkcentre type) running windows xp on 512mb ram i think.

I want to build a system which can run Windows 10 easily without any slowdowns. The 4 main parts that I need advice on are case, motherboard, ram and cpu. The case needs to be as small as it can be so it doesn't take much space. With that in mind I'd also like a motherboard which can fit in a smaller case and supports Intel cpus and if possible with a com port as that is required for the touch screen on the epos monitor. Cpu got to be one of i3s or i5s which can run smoothly with either 4 or 8gb ram. I already have a 120gb ssd which should be enough for the windows 10 and the epos software. I am not looking for a powerful build just a cheap build which can run windows 10 smoothly without any lags. No need for a gpu. Integrated graphics would be enough. Should be as cheap as it can be.

Purchasing links to recommendations would be highly appreciated. Thanks
