How many do you have?  DNS, you should have two for at least up to 2000 users... likewise for AD, and DHCP depends on the lease times you assign.  SQL depends on the load, not just users, but how many transactions are being done and queries being done... what's your environment like now?

Each tool that you reference has specific (and different) scaling recommendations, all based around the # of users in your org, physical and logical layout (single site? many locations?), the available bandwidth to your site(s), etc.

Here are some links to get you started, you can find more by Googling '<product name> capacity planning'
