  THe difference in performance between firewalls is nominal. The CPU power required for processing rules is nothing next to the CPU power required for the handling of interrupts on the network cards, unless you have a freaking monsterous ruleset. I'm surprised anyone would care about performance at all when you can get multi-gigahertz machines for less-than $300.
