Is my hardware up to the task?

I am currently using pfsense in my home network and have a spare machine. I have 10 devices in my network and like the idea of using Nethserver as an all-in-one solution. Before I embark on this project, I would like to know if my machine is up to the task instead of meeting minimum hardware requirements. Can anyone comment? Thanks.

DELL Optiplex 960
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0Ghz
8GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Memory
400GB SATA 3Gb/s HDD
2 NICs


your hardware is ok for the great experience with nethserver.

I am running NS7 on an HP N40L microserver with 4GB ram. And it performs quite well.
The N40L has an old AMD soc, a LOT less than your Core2Duo.
