stupid question about my gamesforwindowslive/xbox live gamertag

Sorry if this question is stupid, but I can't seem to find the answer. I'm guessing because the site is being somewhat redone at the moment - that and I'm new.

I will be getting a 360 (my first one) at the end of this week. I have played a few games on the PC with a Windows Live account (batman arkham asylum and a few others). My question is, once I get my xbox, is it cool to use this same ID?

I am assuming it is, because I logged onto this website with it, but I'm not sure if there would be any differences, drawbacks, or complications. I just don't want to sign up for it, start using it, and realize there is a problem.

Thanks for answering my stupid question in advance.

Yes it's perfectly fine to use the same account for both. When you get your new 360 you'll need to use the recover tool in order to use the ID on the console - support.xbox.com/.../gamer-profile.aspx

Yes, 'Xbox Live' and 'Games for Windows Live' are the same service, so you should be using the same Windows Live ID.
