The D700 is a full frame camera and probably the cheapest and best of it's kind. It could be classed as a semi-pro and will set you back £1,800 for the body only, plus you'll need to start again with your lenses because they won't be any good with this camera. If you can't manage that the D300s (soon to be replaced?) runs at £1,000. This is virtually identical to the D700 except it has a DX sensor and you'll be able to use your D3100 lenses on it. Both of these bodies are Magnesium Alloy, quite heavy but pretty tough.
Sitting just below these is the D7000 (never understand Nikon's numbering system) which is a more comfortable £850 and offers a better sensor than the D300s and HD video.
Having said all that, these cameras will not make you a better photographer; it's more about the sensor (and the D3100 has a good one) and the glass in the front alloyed to the creative genius behind the camera.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
