Lias: I have no direct experience with 2moro, but buying from a random small asian web store with minimal provenance over an established company to save a few bucks is pretty much asking for trouble IMHO.

There is only 1 mention of 2moro & IT in the GPForums retailers thread, and that's asking if anyone has ever dealt with them (which got no replies)
They only have a small number of reviews on pricespy, and the latest is a few months ago.


2moro isn't exactly a web only store. I've been their brick and mortar store on Manukau Road and they are legitimate. Their store isn't primarily for retail because, even though Manukau Rd.'s close to Newmarket, who go there for shopping really? Their store is more like a workshop? Shelves full of parts and not much space. But you're right, it's really strange there're not many comments about them on the web. Maybe people who participate in forums mostly go to Computer Lounge? I don't know.

I would get a z87 chipset. MOther board instead. Also upgrade to the 4770k from the 4770. Over clock capability and better resell value


Probably won't do much overclocking myself and probably won't sell the parts. Although I do take the MoBo's ability to accommodate future upgrades into consideration. Still thinking...

MikeSlackenerny: Thanks for the replies. I admit I'm not sure about i7 vs i5. I went for i7 because I heard that games this might provide me with some longevity on my rig.

EDIT: How about SLI? Is it something that provides extra performance (I mean like value for money) in your opinion?

I wasn't meaning to suggest they were dodgy and would run with your money or anything, it's just smaller companies like that are far more likely to give you grief with RMA's/warranty support, and may fold or disappear leaving you with no warranty (that risk does apply to any company of course, but it's more LIKELY with smaller, lesser known ones)

FWIW I just had my worst experience yet with an RMA with Computer Lounge, and it was still better than just about any other RMA experience I've had.. Even there bad day is better than most peoples best efforts :-)






Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

After all the good things I've heard about Computer Lounge I'm quite confident about their service; the only thing that's pushing me away a little bit is that 2moro has presented a product that fits the bill at a competitive price...

I don't like making decisions.
