Too many open files

I'm getting a "Too many open files in system" error after running for about
10 minutes.  I'm in the process of testing out nginx and it's a pretty busy
server doing around 200 requests/sec.  My current open file limit is
131072.  Does anyone know a safe amount to set this to for a 32-bit linux
system with 6GB ram?
