Currently my pc psu is 250w, is that not enough.

Pentium 4 3.06ghz (thinking of upgrading to pentium dual 2.93ghz)
1.5gb ram
nvidia 9500gt 1gb
660gb hdd
windows xp

I mainly use it for gaming.
Should I upgrade my psu and to how much?

Really for gaming you probably want to upgrade the entire thing.
Core i5, 4GB RAM, HD5770 or similar (depending what sort of games you play) and a Corsair say 550w.

You'll have to update the mobo and CPU and probably the ram as well. Since 478 isnt compatible with socket 775

To answer your questions no, and yes.
Probably 350, 400 watts would do.
Would agree with previous posts though, prolly time for an upgrade :badpc::clap.
