If you dont want an optical drive, how are you gonna install your OS?

lol. I thought OP was using a USB DVD RW (like me). I no longer put DVD RW on a system unless it'd doing vid editing,etc. I have 2x DVD burners (Got a cheap SATA>USB converter off ebay for them). Last time I needed to use a DVD on my every day working PC (E2180 @3.2) was.... about 9 months ago.
