Well, that depends of a lot of things:

Which frequency you are using to clock the AVR?
What is the language you will use? Assembler ?, C ? Basic?
Who long is the code inside the interrupt?

5MHz=200ns instruction cycle on AVR family. If I remember correctly 2 cycles for jumping to the interrupt vector and another 2 cycles for jumping to the interrupt service routine makes 4 cycles. If you won't use any other interrupt and don't have any instructions inside the ISR then complete time for the interrupt to be executed make 6 cycles including the 2 return cycles. This makes an easy calculation of 5/6MHZ for the frequency of a single and empty interrupt. You can calculate what you need by adding the cycles your real ISR will use to that calculation!

If you google for "AVR frequency counter" you will see some examples. This circuits / software will give you an ideia of what you can get from AVR. Most of the software is written in assembler because of the speed.
