Firewall Box minimum system requirements?
Could I get some direction as to whether or not using the low spec system will degrade internet performance, and if other system would be better?
48 MB RAM

Both machines can operate well with DamnSmallLinux and that is what I will probably use to implement Firewall unless there is a consensus as to a better suited distro.

Either one should work fine. I've heard of people still using a 486 for their firewall.
