I'm going to build a new rig within the next few days but I'm not going to be purchasing a cd drive, nor do I have a spare. Is there any way for me to get around installing the ethernet drivers? Or will I have to buy a cd drive?

You need some way to get the drivers to the HD. A flash drive is possible, but with CD drives going for $20 it is worthwhile to get a CD.
