[c-nsp] Recommendation for small GBit router

I am looking for a stable, reliable router / Layer3 switch that can do the
-forward at least 1GBit / 1Mpps
-full support of IPv6
-provide NetFlow data or similar for several hundred connected hosts in a
way that can be used for IP-based accounting (including IPv6 and not
-small size (max. 5HU)
-redundant PSU

nice to have:

not needed:
-full table
-SFP or 10G Interfaces
-high amount of interfaces (3x 1000T is ok)

At the moment there is a GSR 12008 used for it but it has no IPv6 support
(apart from senseless size and power wasting).
I got a suggestion to take a refurbished 7206VXR + NPE-G1 but it still
looks expensive to me for such old piece of hardware.
Can you suggest a better/cheaper solution ?

kind regards
