Steam Moving?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Steam has a very good deal on a game I want but, my current PC can't handle any games. I will do my gaming PC build until April and the sale ends in 2 days and soon 1! Will I be able to get the game now have it on an External drive until my build and put it on my build PC? Even though it will be stored on my PC and then converted to another entire build( No moved parts). I DO NOT want it to be ILLEGAL! Thanks for your help ion advance!

Any game that you buy on steam you can always redownload or backup to an external drive and restore it. The trick is that you just need to be signed into steam to be able to play them. I play all my steam games on 3 separate pc's, just have to sign in.

So, just to make sure it is not illegal to have the same copy of a Steam game on different PCs.

You dont even have to download the game now. Just buy it now, and then you can download it on your new build.
