Here, we have RT running on a DP opteron 248, with mysql on a separate
sunfire v120. RT is pretty responsive, though some queries take ~2-3
seconds to load. (No, the database server never gets pegged.)

Re newer versions, have you ever looked at the RT2 -> RT3 migration

You have to dump everything out of the RT2 database to flat files, then
repopulate into RT3.

When I did a sample run with 10k tickets, it took > 6 hours. I went home
at that point, so don't know when it actually finished. (If anyone has
done this before and wouldn't mind giving any pointers to speed the
process up, I'd appreciate it.)
