I don't know what you've tried or how much time would be considered 
acceptable in your case, but

Graphics3D[Table[Sphere[RandomReal[{-100, 100}, 3]], {10000}]]

took about 5 seconds of real time on my machine, and

Graphics3D[Table[Sphere[RandomReal[{-100, 100}, 3]], {100000}]]

took about 47 seconds.
