With fast enough hardware, you could do it. First, a 64 Bit system. Some motherboards come with a Gigabit chip on it that can run full 1 gig (PCI Express) and has TCP offloading. Some motherboards come with 2 such chips. If not - get a PCI Express gb card that can off load TCP. 2 gig of ram min.
If multicore is taken advantage of by pfSense, then defenately get a quad core - 2.4GHz..
