Higher Stakes Games

Trying to get more into online poker. I am currently playing low stakes and I, admittedly, am struggling with the grind and time commitment. I consider myself a good home game player and have historically won some decent tournaments online. By no means a pro.

For players with more advanced knowledge of online poker, what is the typical breakdown of quality players at the SNG's at $100-$1000 range (specifically at ACR)? Is someone of my caliber just throwing money away, or are there a lot of players that play those types of stakes that are not 'pros' and I'd have a shot at making some money?
