You'd be limited to the switching done on the Supervisor.  By adding a
DFC you're offloading the switching onto the daughter card, essentially
giving you another 15Mpps.

I believe DFC is around $15K list.  You only buy them if you really need
them, and if you're pushing that kind of traffic, $15K list seems cheap.
