I am considering using a Dell Poweredge R210 II as an opnsense firewall for my work lab.
How much should this be able to handle of plain routing, vpn (ipsec? openvpn), ids etc.
It has 16GB ram and a Xeon e3-1220 (4 core 3.1Ghz w/aes-ni)

That is plenty for most cases. the issue is what is your up/down... is it near GB speeds or lower?
