Folks often forget that Mikrotik ROS can also run on x86 machines.....
Size your favorite hardware (server) or network appliance with appropriate ports, add MT ROS on a CF card, and you are good to go.
We use i7 based network appliance with dual 10g cards (you can use a quad 10g card, such as those made by hotlav).
with a 2gig of ram, you can easily do multiple (4-5 or more full bgp peers), and i7 are good for approx 1.2mill pps.
Best of luck.
