plan to purchase 1st 7304 or 3rd 7204?

We have two 7204 routers terminating two isp's, via ds3 and a oc3. We will

be splitting the OC3 traffic into two OC3's ie I1, and I2 . We channel 2

fast Ethernets between the 7200's and our core consists of 6500's, with

7204/6500 gigabit path upgrades approved for next month.

Since we are out of bandwidth point on the 7204, we can not add the second

oc3 or the gigabit card. Do to our qos and acl's we often note 80% cpu

utilization on the 7200's.

It appears the purchase of an additional 7200 series or upgrade to a 7300

series router are our choices at this point.

Any changes for the 7200 series worth waiting on? Its been a rock solid box but the bandwidth points limitation is killing us.

We are in contact with our sales rep and our Cisco engineer. But would

like a third opinion from those in the trenches on a daily basis.
