can split your files down so you don't have to buy something you don't want to... Google works if you use it...

here's the link to look at it...

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W

You can also do the same thing with WinRAR or some other zipping application that you may have on hand.

I highly suggest that you puchase a DL Burner anyway, because you can get them for around 30 USD now. Now the media on the other hand. That is where it is really pricey.
