Question Am i missing anything ~ is this build OK?

Hey guys, new here. Recently ordered a gaming PC (my first, no more laptops )

And i was quite apprehensive /nervous that i have missed anything in my purchase, like, no fan or no RAM(how silly would that be :S )

So without further ado, heres my build

CPU : Intel i5 2500K .
Mobo : Asus P67 pro
Ram : 2x 4GB Corsair DDR3
Case : Zalman Z-pro mid tower block.
Power supply : 650W Corsair Enthusiast power supply (is this enough? )
GPU : GTX 570 Superclocked.
Monitor : (a nice one, forgot name)

that's it right? i may have forgotten one now, but actually ordered it. so help please

Is the CPU OEM or Retail from the website you purchased it off?

Retail is when you get the CPU still in the box with the fan. OEM means you just get the CPU without the fan. OEM is usually best when you get you're own CPU cooler separately.
If you look at it on scan it should say in its name whether it's OEM or not but if you can't find it just post the link

You'll only need a better fan if you plan in OCing, and 650W is fine

looks good. one suggestion though. Have you looked at the 3rd gen I5? only 10 more?

Intel CPU Core i5 3570K Quad Core IvyBridge Processor Retail - BX80637I53570K - Scan.co.uk

You would then want a z77 mobo. (think this is what you've posted above anyway)

Asus P8Z77-V PRO Intel Z77 Socket 1155 Ivybridge Ready Motherboard - Scan.co.uk

MSI HD7850 Twin Frozr OC AMD/ATI Graphics Card - 2GB - R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC - Scan.co.uk

It draws LOADS less power
