JOINs, for the most part, are not bad. "Lots of ... fields" may be more the 
issue. It might be a good time for rethinking the design. You do have a design 
document, don't you? This may be a case where a custom node module (single query 
without JOINs) may be a better choice. Or a faster CPU with more memory... Also 
get a DB expert to tune the DB settings for this set up.

In my case i am going to have lots of content types with lots of cck fields.
D7 creates new table for each cck field. So while reading a node from database. 
It is going to do a join. I dont think that is good thing. 

That is why i was checking if it is possible to have different table for each 
content type.
