I need a router-PC but I don't know Linux. So the best way to get it, is to use Kerio Control.

What about HW specs? E.g.:

- motherboard on Intel H77
- CPU i3-3250 (2 cores, 3.5 GHz)
- 2 GB RAM
- internal NIC Realtek
- PCI Intel PRO/100+ Dual (PCI slot controlled via Asmedia ASM1085)
- one HDD/SSD

Is it OK for routing two pipes from two ISPs, one via DHCP and another one with VPN (L2TP). I need only router and a firewall, all other functions (Antivirus, web-filters etc) not.

I'm not sure about compatibility.

Also I have a question about SYN Flood attacks. What if? As I know, any HW-router with a price up to 300-500$ (or more) will have a problems under those conditions, because their CPU will be overloaded, but with a PC+Kerio I will have more powerful router (mainly thanks to CPU). And I do not want to limit the number of connections.

So to be prepared for this problems, do I need more RAM or 4 core CPU?
