For all the PCs I installed in the past three years I exclusively used the Debian netinst (network installation) image (~ 230 MB) on an USB memory stick. Mainly because modern notebooks don't have a CD/DVD device anymore. In the case of netinst, one needs to use either a Debian repository or ones own repository during install. If network is not available or desirable using installation, one can easily put the first Wheezy DVD (~3.7 GB) on a 4GB (3.60€) memory stick.
