Is 2" Exterior Foam Inulation Overkill?

Considering energy prices (and where they may be heading) I want to add foam insulation over existing house and extension under new vinyl siding. Is 2" foam overkill? I'm in northeast. I have 2 x 4 walls and I figured 2" may be easier than 1" becasue I'm adding new windows and I'm assuming that the jambs for 2x6 walls should fit okay.

Thanks for any adivce.

With only 2x4 insulated walls, adding 2" of foam would be very beneficial.
