no Im suggesting using magneto by it self thats a lot of products to use with the current wordpress cart systems you can integrate wordpress into it if youd like or use the blog plugin for magento, but without knowing the whole needs of the client its somewhat hard to tell you the best solution but a cart system that large I personally would avoid using wordpress solely

I totally agree with OrganicBeeMedia. All the Wordpress ecommerce/cart plugins are not robust enough to handle that kind of product volume and the documentation is awful, and most of them are bug-ridden. Save yourself a lot of headaches and use Magento. Although Magento’s theming framework is unnecessarily complex and xml-happy (it gives me flashbacks to Struts 1 programming), you’ll save time and frustration in the end.
