Hardware for pfsense build.

I am thinking of migrating my pfsense VM to a physical device.

I would like it to run openVPN and Suricata.

Also I have a spare 2 port network card.

Any suggestions for a build? I would prefer it to be low powered and small.

Supports AES-NI so future pfSense builds are supported..

Can also consider installing Sophos UTM home edition if meets ur needs..

That ad suffers from a bad case of chinglish
I think I prefer sophos xg to their UTM just based on design but I will stick to pfsense as it is the most supported open source firewall
