Hey, I currently have a very small case and am upgrading some components, my problem is the power supply I bought has a ton of extra connections that I do not need. There's so many that I can not see any way to keep it organized unless I remove the giant drive bay that is holding the CD/DVD drive. I understand that it would be a major inconvenience to not have a DVD drive in case the computer happened to crash and I couldn't get in windows or something, but other than that I've used it a total of maybe one time since I've gotten the computer, and even in that case I could of downloaded the application from a supplied digital download.
My questions are:
Can I run the computer without a CD/DVD drive, or does it require one to even boot up properly?
Hypothetically if it were to work out and the computer were to crash and I could not get into windows, could I plug it back in and have it be picked up by the motherboard properly so I could use a reformat/repair CD?
I'd appreciate any responses I can get, thanks for reading.
