Default Do barebones actually work?

I'm finally going to get a new PC and the one I want is a barebone from newegg.com and it comes with a 7950 GT. My question is, do these barebone PC's actually work? Can I plug them up and start PCing away? Here's the link to the one I want to get.

Barebon PC

You will need to get a CPU, HSF, memory and hard drive to complete the barebone system you linked to.

Guess I won't be getting a new PC in the near future if that's the case.
