Welcome to the forums George.

Going from 1700+ (1466mhz) to a 2100+ (1733mhz) is about an 18% boost in performance. This is really not that much. Also, running in spec for everything else, there is no gain elsewhere. Personally, I don't think it's worth the effort.

Regarding the heat, there is a little more, but depending on your HSF, should not have a major impact.

Remember, this is an overclocker's forum ... Honestly, I recommend keeping your 1700+ and overclocking it. Even if you only nudge up your FSB and nothing else, you will get an improvement in memory bandwidth, and this will improve your overall performance. If you are lucky, that 1700+ will get to or pass the mhz of the 2100+, to boot.

You have a tried and true overclocker's mobo, and it should give you the flexibility you need to optimize your performance. I have an 8kha+ running my son's system, w/ a duron 1gig @ 1.435ghz.
