New pfsense with old core 2 comp


  • hey all, using the system that was my freenas box as a pfsense.

    system is as follows: core2 e6420, gigabyte p35c-ds3, 4gb ddr2, random nvidia 210 pcie card, intel low-power Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller x2, 450w antec psu.

    Instead of using a HD or SSD , was going to use an older transcend 120x 8gb slc compact flash card on a SYBA SD-ADA40001 SATA II To Compact Flash Adapter with a full install.

    cable modem to one intel nic. other intel nic to network. Suggestions?

    Seems fine.  I used to use Transcend SLC CF cards with full installs for my systems as well.  I don't think they were the 120x models though.  They were gray and "300x" is coming to mind.
