I wrote a whole long rant about this, but then I thought better of it and deleted it.
There is no "I have this many pageviews so how much should I be making with AdSense" metric. It doesn't work like that. There are too many variables. I know of sites with twice that traffic that don't make as much, and I know of sites with half that traffic that make much more.
Moreover, if you are working with an existing site, possibly a forum, that has never run ads before, you have to consider whether or not your existing users will give you any pushback if you start trying to monetize the site.
Anyone can paste in some AdSense code and see what happens, but there's a lot goes into making it pay well.
As for the stats, I would suggest you not rely on host stats, but install something like StatCounter or Google Analytics to get a better fix on your actually traffic. As HP mentioned, your host stats could include bots, multiple "hits" per pageview, whatever. You'll get a better idea from one of those two.
