Wherever you got the key from should have given you the DVD media, legally speaking anyway.

You should also be able to download the software as well.

Microsoft used to sell just Windows XP keys (no disc) for a discount, do they still do this with Windows 7? I don't remember them doing it with Vista.

Some distributors allow you to buy the keys and download the software.

I know you're able to purchase just a license/activation code on Microsofts website. At least, I know you used to be able to. Saw it a while back.
