Default Advice on my build

I am no computer pro, but I'm trying to build my first comp. I'm an expert on getting things for a great deal so I just want to make sure I've done everything right and it's all compatible. (also any suggestions would be great)

CPU- i5 2500k
RAM- G Skills 8gb Ripjaw ddr3 12800 cas-9
case- monolith full tower
PSU- Thermaltake TPW 750 watt
MOBO- ASUS p8p67 LE (3.0)

Did I make a mistake not going with the pro version 3.1 mobo? I guess I didnt really see the difference. Thanks.

You do not have video card or hard drive. The p67 boards do not have onboard video ability.

750W is pretty big for the parts you have, even with a high end card, you'll only need 5500-600W.

I know i'm missing parts just wondering if the parts I have are quality or did I purchase bad parts for a gaming build?

Ah, then No in my opinion your good, but you might want to link the ram as theres just to many with simular names.
