How long is too long for a 4 year old playing educational computer games?

I limit my daughter to an hour at a time, maybe twice a day on some days when she doesn't have school. I'm not sure if this is too long or okay or what. The time she's not playing the computer, she is doing gymnastics or basketball at the Y, or playing with her toy kitchen making recipes, or coloring, or even having playdates with friends. What do you think, honestly? I'm prepared to hear anything lol.
