how many cells is reasonable for solidworks flow simulation?

I have a very complex model I am working on and having a hard time meshing due to the size of the internal flow channel sizes etc.  I am wondering if there is some sort of ball park number for solidworks in general for computation time?  Ie I'm not wanting the computer to sit and crunch for days but overnight would be alright once the meshing is done.

 

I do realize there area a ton of different variables depending on model geometry but I'm wondering if anyone has a ballpark idea of what will bogg a computer down for a week vs maybe 6 hours when converging on a simple flow solution for pressure etc.
