you should try it out its simple, because then you can be sure that the hardware is well supported.
I want to say that this is also based on what packets you want to install, if you plan to install many
packets such as pfBlockerNG, Squid & SquidGuard, Snort, TinyDNS, ClamAV scan, …......
you might be better with more RAM between 4 GB and 8 GB of it. And if you plan to cache
data with squid as a proxy you may have a look at a SSD over a HDD.

I'm running a pfSense box with a 600GB White Label Velociraptor (10,000RPM). Good drive and are rather cheap on eBay (~$50 shipped) and come with a one year warranty.
Once my newer router comes in, I will get a pair of them and run as a RAID1.
