Heatsink and Fan

I have a desktop computer with an Intel Celeron processor, but is just 1.8ghz, so i'm thinking in buying an Intel Celeron Dual Core 2.2ghz (Is just and everyday computer, but I want to play Spore Galactic Adventures and with 1.8ghz I can't) so I found one at great price. But I wonder, Do I need to buy another heatsink and fan to my desktop, or the ones from my old Celeron work just fine?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I recommend you buy a retail boxed CPU ... they

come with a HS Fan and a 3 year warranty.

Thanks and...

Oh, I didn't knew that. Thanks and sorry to bother again, but, does it comes with the thermal compound/grease?

Normally comes with thermal grease pre-applied. Personally

I recommend you get a small tube of thermal grease just in case you have a problem and need to reapply the grease.
