That's going to depend on a number of things:

1. Size of database
2. Usage patterns (many updates or mostly reads? single user or many?...)
3. What hardware you've got
4. What OS you're running.
5. How you've configured your hardware, OS and PG.

There are some test results people have provided in the archives, but whether 
they apply to your setup is open to argument.
