How many hits should I have before moving to a dedicated server?


I have a drupal based site. The front page is about 200kb and I have 10 trimmed topics in front page. Currently the site is hosted on a shared server. My question is how many hits or page loads per hour/minute should I have before it would be necessary to switch to a dedicated server?

My host is hostgator.

Many shared hosts can support up to 10,000 Unique Hits per day  During this point or after, I'd consider upgrading. I would not think their would be an answer to the per minute or hour range, Could be wrong.
