Adding to the info Brent supplied, if you need 3x GE interfaces, then your best bet for the performance you need would be 3845 (has 2x GE built in, add another) or a 7200 + NPE-1G (has 3x GE on the NPE-1G).
If you want full BGP tables, then Cisco recommends a min of 512MB of RAM.
You'll probably find most people in a similar situation are using a 7200.
