I seriously doubt you could ran a board even a tenth as large as any of those mentioned on shared hosting.

way before you get anywhere near that large you are going to have to be running on dedicated servers and probably more than one.

If you optimize a phpbb2 installation and use some sort of caching - you would be surprised on how little server resources are required. A vanilla installation is a completely different story once you add any significant amount of content and traffic.
