Default Nice Lian Li, do i need floppy

I have a very nice looking Lian Li. I have two optical drives with silver bezels to match case. I really really don't want to have to add a floppy for bootable disks. I would also have to get another bezel for the floppy.

My question is, can't I make a bootable CD that would take care of any floppy needs?.....like for bios....OS??? Floppys are all obsolete except for these applications aren't they?......

why would you need a floppy?

the OS is a disk, not a floppy

you only need floppy for raid

and if you do need floppy, then just plug it in if you want to use it and take it out when you don't

or you can stick it in the 5.25" bay and tape it there

so you can install raid with either CD (i think itwas f6 or f8) or the floppy the mobo comes with?

meh i didnt know that

but my floppy/case is black on black, so it actually looks good
