Also do I worry about thermal paste?

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 660 (non-Ti) graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most important factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) will require an additional increase to the combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock you are trying to achieve.

The Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 (CP-9020038), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 54 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is way more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

There should be a tube of TIM (Thermal Interface Material) included with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.

"Tube of Tim" would be a good band name.

Does that mean I'm all set and I have a great power supply?

And also the cords from the power supply will all fit perfectly into other parts

Is the rebate important ?
The TX650 is a decent power supply but for the same $90 upfront cost you can get the fully modular , Gold rated Seasonic X 650

Well worth the $20
