What is a good ratio for an IT technician to how many pc's they are in charge of?

I am a technical analyst currently working for a company with 150 computers. I am in charge of all maintenance, repairs, upgrades etc. But I am also in charge of the dept i.e. budget, purchasing, administrating, researching, etc. I'm also in charge of the phone system, cell phones, security systems etc. I am making a business case, stating that we need to hire a 2nd IT person. In your opinion, what is a good ratio for one IT person and the number of pc's. example one IT technician can be in charge of 60 computers etc. thanks!
