I personally just use the built in Win XP firewall. It offers good basic protection. Go with Zonealarm if you want more features.

PIX's cost from 350$ to 20,000$ +

Looking at the PIX 501 getting 60mbps clear text throughput, I wonder why I am using an 831 which does a 1/6th of the throughput and costs doubble as much.

Once you own and use Cisco it's not much to pay at all for the reliability, security and peformance.
