Question Setting Google’s DNS in pfSense


Hi. Sorry for such an unproffesional question, but if I wanna change where my pfSense router gets DNS, is it correct to set, say, Google's one like this?

Yup. I used those settings when I had a pfSense router. That worked well for me.

I experimented a bit with these settings and it turned out that the correct config is actually this: http://s28.postimg.org/scnhz82yl/scr_1389547278.png . Because if you go to main page of pfSense, there's a section "DNS server(s)" and in there there's a list of IPs at which pfSense apparently looks. With the config in the topic it had about 5 items and with my current config only 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.
