[development] table vs tables

I'm starting a project where I need to make a larger database that I'm used to make. I can use a little advise on this project.
Each record in the database will include 1 to 3 photo and some other information, in total aproximately 100k of memory per record. I expect a total of maximum 500 records per category (1000 categories). So 500 x 1000 x 100K = 50G. It is possible to store all data in one table. This database will be used between a larger database and the clients.
My question is: is one table feasable for this amount of data? Or would it be recommended to store the data in different tables. The key factor here is speed. If the client wants to see some information (always with at least 1 photo), the time to get the information from the database to the screen should be minimal.
