My dual Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU            5160  @ 3.00GHz stepping 0b
is quite bored with 500 devices.  But the main thing is fast disks.  I
use a SAS array of  Vendor: SEAGATE   Model: ST973451SS        Rev: SM04

With four of those in a LVM stripe set, it runs very well.

Of course, to keep track of that many devices, templates are a must.
