I'm a mod over at the Maximum PC Magazine forum and we have 500-700 members and another ~500 guests visit daily. I'm not sure on total members but i'm guessing someplace in the 75,000+. luckly we use the free forum service at delphiforums.com so we don't worry about bandwidth or hardware
The problem is that every forum is different. Your individual pages may have more or fewer graphics (or heavier graphics), more or fewer users, etc. The best way to determine usage would be to run it for a bit and use the stats to predict future usage.
