Not for "apache" but for your memory :-)

I run on a Dual Athlon MP1900 with 4 GByte Memory
around 1400 VirtualHosts and have reached the limit...

I think, I will use a Dual Opteron 242 with 24 GByte of memory...

Hmmm I prefer to install one Opteron 242 Server for around
5000 Hosts using php and postgresql and without loadbalancing. 

If you do loadbalancing with e.g. 3 Servers, two servers must handel
the Trafic of three if one fails... And if you have not enough
resources the other two Servers going down (own experience)
