[Snort-users] performance -- linux vs. solaris

So, I need to buy a couple of boxes to sniff some extremely busy (average
40Mbit/sec) links.  I'm using a dual PIII 550 w/ linux and the CPU is pegged
at 100% (only with the defrag module turned on).  

How would the performance of this compare with it:

400Mhz UltraSparc w/128MB of RAM and solaris 8 for under $1000, if it will
outperform the PIII 550 with Linux, I think I may have to order me up a few
of those.
