[mrtg] MRTG hardware specs

I am fairly new to mrtg, and am very impressed. I've set up some basic
polling of Cisco devices, and haven't had any problems to date.

I'd like to know what some other mrtg users configurations are like -
specifically hardware specifications (I'm running on NT) and number of
polled devices.

I plan to poll 120 routers for the following stats using 5 staggered cfg
files (running one minute apart):

*	ifInOctets & ifOutOctets every 5 mins
*	Ping times (using mrtg-ping-probe) every 5 mins
*	Cisco avgBusy5 (CPU Util) every 5 mins
*	Cisco CRC & Aborts every 5 mins
*	Cisco free Memory every 2 hours
*	Cisco IP accounting data (using whodo) every 30 mins

Is this configuration realistic? Are the snmp requests likely to overlap
polling intervals? Any other suggestions?

I will be running on a Windows NT Pentium II 400.
