...if the problem is just too many screenshots on the desktop and Finder running out of resources trying to build thumbnails.

Theoretically the limit to the amount of files in a directory is about 2 billion.

But having "preview-able" files in an always-open folder like Desktop will bring your system to a grinding halt.
