CD Drive for Computer

Hi,

I am going to build my first desktop and I have a question. Do I need to have a CD Drive to install windows 7 or is there another way?

    If you have a computer with a DVD drive and a large thumbdrive, then you can follow the steps in this article to create a bootable windows 7 install drive:

  2. Having one is the best option for it. But there are various boot options based on your mobo and bios. You could also boot from a flash drive if you wish or get a pre-formatted HDD instead if you do not want to have to deal with the hassle. I know optical drives are cheap but you would definitely rather use the money on something else.
