You've got to say more about what the router is doing and what you need 
from it.  If it's routing for 8 1gb ethernets and doing full BGP routes, 
and nothing special, then a 6500 is an attractive option bang for your 
buck-wise.  They're made for ethernet and comparitively cheap to keep 
adding ports to.
