I know most large stores and supermarkets use EPOS, but don't think they have powerful PC's to manage it?

Don't imagine Devs has any interest in what you, or anyone thinks about anything. For some unknown reason he just loves throwing time and money into a big pile and setting it alight.

none of it has gone to waste. You are quibbling over 200 for something that will perform better. I purchased one last year and it was fantastic, and QT is gonna have a blast with his new pc.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind it's a fine performing machine. If I'm quibbling about anything it's certainly more than 200 quid. I'd say about 600 plus a good old pile of risk in having working equipment on the end of an RTB warranty. But we went through all this with your mate that you mugged off for similar money didn't we.

you can find me a decent pc for 400-500? Im genuinely asking why you think my pc has any greater chance of being an RTB issue than any cheaper pc you can find? My friend who purchased his PC is delighted with what he got. If its the same person im thinking of.

If the business has had OTT equipment in the past and they love it, should I not just provide more of the same compared to the headache they have currently?

Apologies I forgot PC's never go wrong and that websites literally the world over have gaming and business PC's in separate sections just to show off. Please proceed.

Am i buying a gaming PC? what defines a gaming PC to a business PC? PCs can go wrong, I have not said they can't, so please proceed to tell me what difference it makes buying a pc from a place I have bought 5 pcs and had no problems with and this magical non fault place you know of?

or shall i receive a "i dont wanna waste my breathe answer", as you certainly didnt answer my question in the last post.

You should get a Cray 1. They're still reasonably powerful, and best yet, they have somewhere for the customers to sit!

a lot of the all in one computers suck and really struggle after a couple years. Elo touch systems are what we have used in the past and they dont hack it. So first time im moving away from them and hoping we get better use out of a tower.

why pay 1025 for a 2.5GHz Celeron Dual-Core G540 when I can get a top spec pc for similar money?

Top spec? Hardly. It's great and fits QT's needs, but its not close to top spec.

E: Haswell E i7, x99 mobo, 64gb ram, 2 x Titan X plus bells and whistles is approaching top spec and also approaching 5K.

in comparison to the Celeron processor, its miles and miles ahead.

Right, devs supercomputer EPOS aspirations aside, I now have a 1200 paperweight. I opted for no OS because I'm too clever for that (I'm really not). Is Windows 10 worth it? I tried it once and it put me off forever. If it is, I'll get me an ISO of that downloaded forthwith. I guess 64 bit is what all the kids are raving about nowadays?

You need Windows 10 if you want DX12, and yes it's 64-bit you want.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...load/windows10

You could always reuse your old Windows key. If it's an OEM key, activate by phone. I hear Windows 10 will still activate with 7/8/8.1 keys too, although I've never tried it. Installing 7 will probably be a pain in the arse though due to missing xHCI drivers.

The free upgrade is still available from here as well, assuming you're willing to lie about using assistive technologies. They don't check:-

Turns out you don't need Win10, but all the new fancy stuff won't work without it, so you might as well go for Win10. Also, you can't install Win7 via usb on skylake, you'd need a physical copy.
