Supermicro has an Atom D525 with dual onboard Intel Gigabit NICs and
PCI-E expansion slot.

You have your option of front or back IO case. Links are to the cases
with high efficiency power supply.

Just add memory, SSD, and 4 port Intel Gigabit NIC. I'm not sure the
performance of the Atom handling full 5 Gbps of traffic.

If you have some money to spend Vyatta has a nice appliance with 6
Gigabit interfaces.
