I got a bike about 2 & 1/2 years ago, which had Sora shifters and 2300 components. I can tell you that the shifting was very nice. If you don't care about the shifting, then go ahead. My biggest complaints about the system were: the crankset, you could tell it was of a lower quality, it wasn't true, and shifting up front was lousy. The brakes were also weak, but these were Tektro brakes with their cheap pads. Had I upgraded to nicer pads (a $7 investment about), then I'd have been happy with that.
Spend a few dollars more and at least get Sora shifters is what I recommend. And welcome to the forums!
Oh, I now use Dura Ace & Ultegra components. They are nicer, but I can't knock the Sora, except the being able to shift while in the drops.
