Computer parts delayedJune 22, 2012
As you already know, the group’s HQ is super secretly located somewhere in Southeast Asia called the Philippines and one of the problems with Filipinos buying stuff online are shipping charges and restrictions to ship certain items to said secret location. We can’t order in Newegg because they don’t support international shipping and Amazon restricts me from buying the i5 2500K and 2 4GB Corsair Vengeance RAM sticks. We were then pointed to Tiger Direct and thankfully they allow sending the stuff we wanted here. Unfortunately we have to pay the shipping costs and it’s pretty expensive.
EDIT: We’ll settle on what we have.
There are other options like the Philippine store Sulit. However I’m not familiar with the suppliers and quite frankly I don’t trust them. Also I’m not in Metro Manila and the parts being sold here are… Well… there are no good parts… The fastest CPU available here is an i3. Also they only have generic RAM sticks.
We already have a new tower case, motherboard, video card, and other miscellaneous stuff.
Please feel free to comment.
I intentionally used the delicious Saki GIF to get your attention.
