Is there any relationship between queue size and performance?

We have a 150 host network, with a 300/64 Kbit/s internet access for each one.

Now, we are using a Duron 1300 / 1024MB with BWM and Win2K3 to measure the bandwidth of internet connections. Will we obtain any performance gain tuning this value? What is the relative best value?

The queue size doesn't affect performance in general. It determines the maximum number of packets in the rule's queue before the rule begins to drop packets. Since your server has enough RAM you don't need to change the queue size. The min. free RAM size in bytes for stable operation can be computed as MaxQueueSize * NumberOfRules * MaxPacketSize, so in your case 500 (default) * 150 * 1600 = ~114 MB.
