BGP prefixes

Hi all , soon i want to buy a AS number for my /24 ip class and make load balancing via 2 ISP.
I'm new to BGP routing, so my provider asked me if the router can sustain 350.000 prefixes.
I have router os on x86 but i'm planing to buy CCR1016-12G.
My question is a limit for loaded prefixes?
What is the best solution for me x86 or CCR1016-12G ?

Thank you !

Hi,
The main limitation is amount of RAM.
I've been using RB1100 with 1,5GB of RAM with 2 full BGP tables ~400k each for some time and it was ok.
I'd prefer CCR ;)
