Checkpoint is an INCREDIBLY secure, but inherently frustrating platform to manage. The gui/cli must often be used together to effect the changes you're looking for. Don't get me started on the gaia hardware management interface.
If you must buy it, ensure that you get support. Personally, I'll take Fortinet, Palo Alto or even Juniper SRX over anything checkpoint.
Different vendors have a slower speed for each option you enable on their devices so overestimate the size.
Some vendors will tell you the % of slowdown but consider double the line speed to compensate for the device's slowdown.
Usually, it is the Internet bandwidth, a number of users and (in the case of NGFW) you have to check if you are going to perform SSL filtering and application control, but lately, they are more concerned about the type of link to the Internet.
Almost all manufacturers have a link to check the size of the firewall, but unfortunately, it is for partners only. If it is possible to have more information we can make an approximation with SOPHOS or Fortinet, if you like.
