    How does buying from notik.ru work?

    My current rig is on its last leg, and with the Xenia XBox emulation project running along, I think I will be able to run my XBox360 games in a system which can handle Xenia, which it appears this one can.

    I've been trying to make disc images for my game discs, but I haven't been able to on my current rig, but I think that is because the CD drive is malfunctioning. In any case, I was able to torrent the image from my Russian pirate comrades at rutracker.org, and I think I can transfer the downloadable content as well and somehow hack into it.

    Anyway, the question at hand is how does purchasing from notik.ru work? I understand how to purchase from Ulmart, an being able to pick the item is great, but I have a feeling it won't be so easy with notik.ru. Anyone have experience, especially in SPB?

    EDIT: Here's another place:

    I think I'll be going to Ulmart after all:

    What about this one https://www.citilink.ru/catalog/mobi...ebooks/499065/ from Citilink, more or less same kind of shop as Ulmart

    Strange question... As same as everywhere - call them, reserve the goods, come to the shop, pay and pick what you reserved.
    Or order delivery (with or without prepayment).

    And all the men and women merely agents

    I thought these places would require shipping, which I don't want to get into.

    As it turned out, I ended splurging on the 8 GB RAM model , which Ulmart had in stock at its store/warehouse near the airport, so it was "cash & carry":

    It seems that the store there is far from any regular bus lines (although I suppose if you walked a km, you'd get to a line), but they have a free shuttle from Moskovskiy that runs every hour.

    That one has a Radeon video system. The main purpose of getting a powerful rig is to be able to run Xenia. which uses a driver called "Vulkan", and it seems that Radeon doesn't work as well with this, whereas NVidia (which the one I bought has) is great.

    I am not into gaming so any video can do for me, but Citilink have a good search filtering system, I found this https://www.citilink.ru/catalog/mobile/notebooks/1027748/, but any way, Ulmart and Citilink are often on the same price or that close thay what you can save is less than a buss ticket, but now and then they have a good offer, they both offer that you order on the internet and pay when you pickup
