It depends on what you play and at what resolution. I'm leaning towards recommending just waiting to see what new hardware comes out.

I play RIFT, League of Legends, Guild Wars 2, lots of steam games. I just play a lot of games. I try to play at 1280x720 but if it the games textures don't scale well, or look too crappy for my tastes I just play native 1680x1050.

Ur 4100 would bottleneck a besatly card like the gtx760,hd7950,hd7970.gtx770 e.t.c. It can hold up good upto a hd7870 with good O.C'ing.
