Default Any Good Accounting Software?

I am currently using Quickbooks for another business but not using it for my ecommerce retail music book business. I'm tracking everything manually at this point but am trying to make a decision on accounting software and the inventory aspect is my main area of concern. It seems that Quickbooks' lack of costing methodolgies (uses average cost only rather than LIFO/FIFO options) is a serious drawback since our product costs do fluctuate from time to time. In my research of Peachtree, I see that it is more flexible and allows other cost methodologies. Can anyone else share your experience in regard to this issue tell me about any other accounting software that you might recommend for a small retail business? Thanks.

What is your budget?

Peachtree and virtually all other "name brand" accounting packages are now all titles of Sage Software. The exception is MYOB, which is similar to QB as far as inventory and costing.

MAS 90 is pretty much the ideal package, but it is not cheap. Sage also now sells AccPac, I'd stay away from that.

Check out www.sagesoftware.com and compare their offerings.
