What is your mail volume?
You really need a serious amount of mail for SA to bog down.
As you all realized, mail volume is relative.

2-3GHZ mimedefang+sa box with no problem.
Then throw in greylisting if sa is slowing you down.
That should work well at reducing the number of messags you need to run
content-analysis on with sa.

Greylisting has worked well at blocking drive by spammers from one shot ip
I've used it on my production servers with never a complaint.
