PHP loop and high cpu usage

I have a loop in a php script (5.2.11 on IIS) that builds data from a database, there could be many lines (20k+) and it can run for several seconds. I have noticed that the cpu usage goes up to 100% while this is busy which is understandable, I was wondering:
1 - Is this cpu usage is going to affect the server badly (for other requests) or will it give resources to other requests as needed?
2 - What I could do about this to free up some cpu time (ala vb6 DoEvents type thing)
