    Its been a month since i got my computer that i ordered sent and its still not working. The motherboard that was sent was stuffed, so i had to send it back. 2 weeks later i hear from them that the motherbaord is no longer stocked and they have to get it elsewhere. that took another 2 weeks for them to get all that sorted.

    Now i received a new one back today but with pieces missing. So i still cant complete building it.

    wtf... customer service missing

    Should have bought from Newegg. Or were you trying to save $10?

    Oops. Didn't notice your location. Its too bad you don't have a Newegg down there. They're really good on the customer service.

    So far I haven't had any problems with either newegg.com and zipzoomfly.com. I've also gotten some new and refurbished stuff from geeks.com.


    Stupid question: ftw?

    I don't think I've recommended them before, actually. But my point is that they offer the kind of service he wasn't paying for when he went ultra-discount...
