Well, it depends upon your comfort level with BSD. If you are 
experienced, then sure, this way is the way to go. You'll not need to 
worry about applying any PC-BSD binary updates if you track -Stable and 
such, since you'll be getting those directly from the FreeBSD tree.

However, if you want to move to 8.0, I'd highly recommend just 
installing PC-BSD 8.0, since doing a manual update from 7.x -> 8.0 can 
be a HUGE pain, and require to to rebuild all of your ports, which in 
effect means you'll be running on regular FreeBSD now :P
