As long as you are using a system that meets or exceeds Sage's recommended system requirements - especially having 1-2gb of RAM - and you are being realistic about how many other programs/services you are running at the same time, the current version of Act! performs well.
All things being equal, Act! 2009 will perform significantly better than Act! 2005 did.
Act! 2005 was really a 1.0 release, with each version since, Sage has worked hard to continue to optimize the performance and it shows.
The other thing to keep in mind is the database size. If you have 150,000 contacts, that is going to have an impact on performance as compared, to say a 1500 contact database.
