What's the longest run (from switch to host)?  If you have a bunch over 100m, it may be better to have some remote switches that connect back to a core.

What speed will the connections be?

If you're going to be running 1g connections to 600 nodes on a single switch, even the densest 6500 series 1g linecard has 48-ports.  Which means that you'll need 13 modules.  And the 6513 only has 11 slots available for linecards.

So if you want to do this on a single chassis, you're going to have to get a Nexus 7018.  Which is a ton of money for bandwidth you'll never use.
