I normally use -j3 on my E7400 machine, but I haven't compiled a full build in a few months - it usually takes over an hour. Note that I have to compile the 32-bit version since that PC still has 32-bit Vista installed (don't ask).

Assuming Windows 7 is still in any way similar to Vista, make sure any annoying background processes are disabled as they will happily chew up CPU time.
