Depends on the packet rate and data rates. As a reference point, a 486DX2-66 
was able to handle saturation traffic in both directions using two NE2000 ISA 
cards on 512KBit/s down, 256KBit/s up ADSL, at just over 10,000 packets per 
second, without struggling. These things don't scale linearly, but unless 
your network connection is much faster, the CPU's unlikely to be a 
bottleneck.
