I would like to hear an answer to OP question as well. I'm in Act1 inferno difficulty with little trouble but I dont enjoy it much due to fact I have to relay on cookie-cutter build and glass cannon style. I also dont like Act1 areas in general.
So, ist Act4 hell diff. viable farming area or I have to bang my head against the wall in inferno?
Here's the answer: the most effective place to farm at any point is the *highest level* place that you can *comfortably* clear. No point throwing yourself at a brick wall if you can't kill anything and keep dying. But on the other hand, farming Hell gives you lower level drops. So for you at the moment, the best place is Act 1 Inferno, probably the last stage so you can kill the Butcher with 5 stacks. Then you'll be getting Inferno level items that you can sell for more gold on the AH.
But if you can't survive in Inferno, or you hate Act 1, or for any reason you're having no fun doing Inferno Act 1 runs, then you should stick to Hell and play your favourite area. You can still sell your drops on the AH, you will just get less gold for them.
