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)
