With a bigger power supply you just reduce the risk of blowing it. If a PSU dies, it can take your whole system with it, so if you're so keen on overclocking, definitely check that mark first.
Your current CPU baffles me a bit, because you list it as Athlon x2 4000+ 2.1Ghz, but as far as I know, the three models of 4000+ are all 2.0Ghz.
Is that to show that you already have 100Mhz overclock? Anyway.
If it currently draws 65W, overclocked to something in the lines of 2.5Ghz, it could jump over the 95W mark.
Your motherboard theoretically
supports up to 125W CPU, but
it's only 2-phase Vltage Regulation Module, so I'd be really careful with that.
Long story short - you can OC with your current PSU and mobo, but it's a risk. First and greater risk comes from the PSU, then the mobo.
I suggest that, in case you OC, you keep it under 2.3Ghz and not push any further.
You say you are not successful in your overclock. Can you describe exactly what you try and what happens?
AM2 / DDR2 systems are not popular for great OCability, so it is possible that you can't OC your system at all, even with new PSU!
