Depends what you're trying to do. If you are buying 8 to upgrade it's probably cheapest to buy the upgrade version from a store on disk and create USB install from disk
If you have Win 8 and want to re-install and have a valid product key try this download link (It's from a Pro Upgrade)
(Let me know if it works, you'll need your product key to download)

I borrowed a friends optical drive and just installed it from the disc. Thanks for the responses :D
