Alternatively, (and depending on traffic type/mix) you could consider 
implementing line compression (would require an AIM co-processor 
~$400/router). We have seen compression rates of 3:1 across two T-1s with 
only a 10% delta on CPU performance. Bear in mind that this is on 2610XMs 
with IPSec, OSPF, and GRE...The economics (kill some of your T1s, compress 
accross the remainder) and performance of compression can be very
