I'm currently looking to deploy a backend IDS for my ISP. I need to know the best hardware architecture that snort can run the fastest on. If I where to budget $4000 to each snort box, What would be the "dream system" to run it on.

If I was to stay with the notion that the Pentium line would be best bang for the buck, what would be the fastest underlying OS to run snort on under the i386 chipset? 
Would OpenBSD be the fastest? 
How does it compare to say Mandrake?

Thanks all!!
