I have a HP Pavilion computer, and was going to upgrade the cpu from a celeron 667 to a celeron 800. I know the new one I'm looking at is compatible (mainboard wise), but I was worried about heat. Do I need to get a new heatsink/fan/thermal pad or anything else?
Either get busy living or get busy dying.

The heatsink should be adequate. The only thing you might need would be some thermal paste, or thermal tape.

i agree with cheyenne. But if you really want to, a better heastsink with a fan wouldn't hurt.
