What Performance Can I Expect From These Specs?

Hello all. I am eyeing a Lenovo Thinkcentre M73 that I can score for real cheap. With the following specs what can I expect it to be able to do?
2x 80gb SSD
1 intel 4 port nic
(possibly an Intel t520 sr2 SFP+ card that I have kickin around)
Fios 940/880 internet speed.
Also what does each component contribute to?
what does having a faster processor offer? more cores?
what does RAM affect?
I am sure this thing will be overkill but the price is a lot lower than a SG-1100.
Its purpose is to replace my Fios router, and it will work in conjunction with my Unifi switches and AP's
I would like to be able to run a VPN to 2 Macbook Pros, 2 iPads, iPhone, Android phone simultaneously while also doing a network wide ad-blocker. I also want to be able to monitor my network remotely and segregate my IoT devices with 1 way rules.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: Saw the post about what things generally affect what. Also this will be an entry into pfsense in my home lab for testing and experience gathering.
