The next thing would be to decide what ya gonna do with it. Then all of the
above may or may not be necessary.
- Traffic shaping with pf/altq needs custom kernel -> altq(4)
If you play games or use other apps that make processes grow beyond 512MB, you
also need to set kern.defdsiz and kern.maxdsiz in /boot/loader.conf to a more
