Even if it is not your first build never freeby windows unless it's a beta from microsoft and your actually good enough to be a beta person for it or you'll have 100% fail rate. But good choice for first build.

No worries, I plan on purchasing Windows, but I do plan to use an OEM just to save some money on it.
