If you are well versed, or know someone who is well versed in Microsoft Access you can build yourself a pretty decent system tailored to what YOU need.
Quickbooks will be good for basic bookkeeping, but Im pretty sure you wont be able to control inventory through there. You should be able to set up some cost accounting in quickbooks, but you will have to set up the accounts and reports for whatever you needed.
After you make your decision remember, the reports any software makes(quickbooks, access, peachtree, etc) are only as accurate as the information entered. Dont hire a $10/hr bookkeeper or you will be making decisions based off of wrong records.
