Dose the optical drive really have any effect on gaming?

I was just wondering and if so then what is a good optical drive for around 30-50 bucks?

I'm only using the computer for gaming, really.

Well, you would need the optical drive to install the game! Other than that, unless the game requires the CD/DVD there is no need for it.

Yea, I know it was a stupid question. I just thought that the drive might affect gameplay in some way, guess not.

God, I feel like such a moron. :pfff:

Well as Bigfysh3 said you don't need it unless your planning on getting PC games on disc format. If your using Steam or Origin for games then you won't need a optical drive, as well you can install an OS through a USB drive.
