i have a built PC, is it fine buying OEM windows licence from G2A?

i have built my own PC and i've been using different commands to extend my trail but now i'm thinking about buying a genuine licence because i get enough money now to buy myself one so i can get my hands on win 10 so my question is: is it fine to buy a cheap OEM licence from G2A? all i have to do is get the installation files and the key will work fine, right?

I would be VERY suspicious about any OS software sold through that channel - their prices and delivery method lead me to suspect that they are counterfeit.
Do you have a link to the exact one you're thinking about?
