Quick question as I am building my first pc build from scratch tommrow! :D ( I AM HYPEED)

Can i still use a USB boot drive of windows 10 without having purchased a key?

Also can i purchase a OEM copy of windows 10 and use the key provided to authenticate?

If anyone can recommend a way to reduce the cost of the OS that would be brilliant!

[REMOVED]

Thanks guys, will also be posting my completed build tommrow on my birthday , wish me luck boyz ( and girls... wasn't assuming your gender ...OR WAS I ?! )

Thanks again !

There is no need for a key prior to installing Windows 10. In fact, you can still use unregistered version forever but with limitations. Limitations include limited customization and a watermark on your desktop.
Once you decide to buy it, you can register it after.

I think I had it for a while but didn't bother me much. The text is somewhat transparent.

Yes, you can download, and install windows without a key. It will work perfectly fine for a month I believe, and afterwards you will lose some features.
