idiwa,

It is certainly possible to create over 300 tables! MySQL has been known to handle thousands of tables with Terabytes of data.

I shall look at where some bottlenecks may occur.

thinking about one of the obvious bottle necks will be your server spec, ie your ram processor and general infrastructure.
