CPU upgrade

I aim to upgrade my cpu shortly from a P4 2.6ghz/512/533 s478 to a 3.06ghz/512/533. I have two questions really. Will the current heat sink/fan be ok for the new cpu or will i need to replace them? And i wonderd if my 250w power supply would need an upgrade as well.The rest of my system is a 120gh HD two dvd drives and a 6600gt graphics card.o/s xp sp2.All advise welcome!

I would certainly recommend getting at least a 350-400watt power supply, and a new heatsink and fan can be bought for sub £10.

sorry I should have added, when you buy a new P4 cpu, it normally comes with a new heatsink/fan.

sorry should have said it will be second hand so not sure if fan/heat sink included.
