it depends a little on how long the pages are and how large the total 
set of words on your site is, as well as the total number of pages, 
but there will be some relation between those figures.

some totals from my sites:
* 2.6MB for 2,500 smallish pages
* 7.25MB for 3,000 more wordy pages (total about 80MB)
* 700k for 300 wordy pages

those are for all the data files combined. looks like you'll be about 
2MB at most.
