Our experience trying to assemble 50GB of 454 data with MIRA suggests you won't want to wait that long.

If it's just solexa data, i'd suggest keeping to the various de-bruijn assemblers - not sure i can really 'recommend' one though, i've had bad experiences with all of them that i tried.

BTW, SOAP doesn't appear use paired data until the scaffolding stage, so it's not necessarily as bad as it looks.
