What the $&#* is a Primary Drive? What kind of Drive is it? or do you mean the Device Drivers? If so then yes you most likely do.

A primary drive is a main drive, the system drive. It's what your computer boots from. It's kinda very important if you really wanna use that pc.

thanks for the replies. I did some more research into it and when the seller said primary drive he/she meant the optical drive (the cd or dvd-rom drive). The model that i'm buying isn't manufactured with one so i don't necessarily need it but if i wanted one i could buy and external drive.
