Booting problem, after power loss.

Hello everybody, I was casually browsing the internet, and my cat decided it would be hilarious to unplug my PC, no big deal, I thought. But when I tried to boot it right afterwards, it didn't. So I hit my reset button, and it brought me to windows startup repair. After 10 minutes of a blue bar going back and forth, it said that the problem couldn't be fixed automatically, yada yada yada. So it shut down. I booted it up right afterwards perfectly fine. All the components seem to be working. But that doesn't stop me from being a little worried. Do I have anything to be worried about here?

Specs:
CPU:2500k@4.0ghz
Mobo Asus p8z68-v LX
GPU EVGA GTX 480
PSU: Corsair GS800
HDD 1tb WD Caviar Green.

Thank you in advance.

    I'd say, "No."

    When you shut down normally, everything will be properly written to the hard drive. That means that you should be able to successfully reboot.

    However, I would backup all the data just in case I had to rebuild the system.
