Obviously your win rate drops the higher you go, what sort of limits are you thinking of with higher?
Not saying you can't beat higher, but playing higher could have the opposite effect of trying to increase your hourly rate, especially if you haven't the experience in the micros. I'd just suggest, even at 4 tables which isn't to many play the $1.50/$3.50's, even though it might take a while, play like 1000 games and see how you're getting on.
Last thing I'd recommend is playing higher until you can prove to yourself you can beat the lowest limits, thus earning an hourly and once you can, then just move up.
If of course you have played higher before and are confident in your play, then go for it.
