You are using really low number for worker_connections, with 8
workers you'll be only able to serve about 6k connections in
total. If you see nginx not responding to http requests - you are
probably hitting this limit. Try looking at error_log and
stub_status output to see if it's true.

You rely on OS to do actual IO, and this may not be a good idea if
you are serving large files. Your OS will likely use something
about 16k read requests and this will trash your disks with IOPS
and seeks.

Try either AIO or at least normal reading with big buffers (and
without sendfile), i.e.

sendfile off;
output_buffers 2 512k;

or something like.

Just 1 spindle isn't really good, but you should be able to get
something about 600 Mbit/s (raw disk speed on sequentional
reading, test your disk to see more correct numbers) with large
files and proper tuning even if your working set is much bigger
than memory and effective caching isn't possible.
