    The main consideration here is how much traffic you need to firewall. What is your WAN connection speed?
    If you want to run additional services like web proxy, IDS/IPS or VPN that will increase the hardware requirements.
    The number of NICs you need deppends on how your network is configured. You will need at least two, for WAN and LAN connections, but more if your internal network has several subnets.
