That's what I did. I just kegged my first 2 batches.

After a week, it was decently carbonated, but still had a bite...smoothed out now. The second beer has only been in there a week...needs more time.

For future batches, I'm probably going to naturally carb w/ dextrose in the keg. Then when my current keg kicks, I'll stick it in the fridge at serving pressure and it should be pretty good when it gets cold. I hope anyway.

Wow, I'm glad I ordered mine when I did. They just upped their price on their Perlick upgrade for $15.00 to $25.00. Damn

Yeah.. I missed out on that. It's because perlick jacked up their prices. Oh well, 20 extra bucks for a kegerator setup is inconsequential.
