Optical drives have really become limited in their use due to the fact that most software and games can now be directly downloaded from the internet.
So, one of the easiest ways to save money on your new gaming computer is to simply cut out the ~$20 or so that an optical drive costs and just install Windows from a spare USB drive.
Of course, if you have a large budget for your PC, an extra $20 on an optical drive won’t be too big of a deal. But, if you are working with a really tight budget to build an affordable gaming PC, evert cent counts.
Fortunately, installing Windows 10 from a USB is incredibly simple. This post will walk you through the process step-by-step.
