I just asked around on the #git irc channel, and they confirmed that with 
80k files, on a regular hard-drive, running git-status (cold = the first 
time), one minute can be expected. 

Some things you can try:

   - Do regular work on a RAM-disk <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAM_drive>(if 
you have the memory to spare), but you must remember to always push to 
   a proper disk before restarting your computer
   - Invest in a solid-state-drive <http://lifehacker.com/ssd/>, as these 
   tend to speed up Git repository operations significantly
   - Split your repository into several smaller ones
