Im not sure I know what you want to do, at least you could provide more details.

Using MySQL with Radius is a convenient and fairly easy method to handle users (I handle around 250 users that way).

Neither MySQL nor Radius generally requires a very powerful CPU (compared to more CPU intensive tasks), since I/O performance is often more important.
