Load balancing firewalls?

Hi All,

I'm setting up a dual-ISP setup at home (cable modem and ADSL) and am
shopping around a dual-ISP-capable firewall box.

Ideally, I'd like the box to be able to handle:

1)  DMZ (at least one zone) because I'll be hooking up a gaming server
off of this router

2)  Static and Dynamic NAT

3)  Load balancing (combining and treating the two ISPs like a single,
large data pipe both in and out) for those computers not in the DMZ
(that computer is getting a static IP).

4)  Web-manageable (not Cisco PIX CLI)

I'm thinking like the Firebox X500 + Fireware Pro or Sonic Wall TZ-170
+SonicOS Upgrade maybe.

I'm open to all ideas; the cheaper, the better.
