Depends on why you need to upgrade? If you are upgrading because you
need more VPN connections then I would consider getting a VPN
concentrator and sticking it on the other side of your firewall. 

If your growing and having current performance issues, PIX or Netscreen
in my opinion. But I would still stick a VPN concentrator behind your
firewall along with and IDS.
