If I am using the NZXT h440 for my build, since it doesn't come with an optical drive can I but an external DVD drive and use that to install windows 10 in my system? I don't want to do it via USB

I don't want to do it via USB.

Then you have a problem as Windows 10 is coming on USB sticks not DVDs.

can you explain to me how to install it via USB? Would I pay for it or is it a download

If you are buying a new copy of Windows 10 it will come on a USB stick. You would then set the bios to boot from the USB, and plug it in.

If you are up grading to Windows 10...

So if I am buying a new copy I would have to get it on a different PC?

Oh so it will be shipped to me. I that I had to have a USB stick then download it off the website on to the USB drive.And how do I install it once I get it. Do I just plug it in to a USB drive then it pops up and o go through the setting then I'm done? Or is it more complex than that?

I bought Windows 10, it came as a disc, and I am now trying to figure out how to install it using an external optical drive. :/
