Simplifying wires, tubing, routing, etc

Any thoughts on modeling wires, tube routing, etc in assys and parts with a polygon profile instead of a circle to reduce computational load?  Maybe a 5-side or 7-side polygon-- something simple and not used in general so it can be recognized as a cable, etc?  Is this a decent idea?  I have large, (2x2x7)-meter assemblies with 800+ parts.

 

Please consider "getting a better computer/hardware" as an obvious and off-topic answer.  I'm just curious about the merit of polygon wires, etc...
