First, I definitely recommend taking the Splunk Fundamentals 1 class. It's free and it gives you a good overview of all thing Splunk without making your head spin.

The answer to your question depends on your environment. 5G across 200 nodes will get tight if you want to see into everything. Take a look at this question and answer that is similar to yours for the pros and cons of going with 200 forwarders or a couple servers.

Hoped this helped!
