That's no problem at all, depending on:

  + How complex are the queries you're intending on running?

  + How will the data be spread between the tables?

  + The amount of data per row also makes a difference, if it is 
extremely large.

You're almost definitely going to be needing a SCSI or better RAID 
array, plus a server with quite a few GB's of ECC memory.

If you need to get specific about hardware to the point of knowing 
exactly what you're needing, you're likely best to pay a good PostgreSQL 
consultant to study your proposal in depth.

Hope this helps.

Regards and best wishes,
