Website blocking / content filtering and bandwidth allocation

Hello
I have a small business running ( of about 10 Software engineers)
and need to to do the following
1.. Bandwidth allocation ( some people in the company should have the priviledge of getting higher bandwidth)
2.. website blocking: i want certain websites to be blocked i.e porn, video sharing , instant messaging
3.. content filtering

Could I implement the above at my firewall itself ? ( PIX / Sonicwall / Dlink)

Thanks

I have experience with Watchguard firewalls and they do everything your asking for.
Content blocking, QOS (quality of service).  With QOS, you can create specific proxy's for each of your pc's that limit bandwidth.    Put your high bandwidth users in a proxy that has a higher bandwith allowed and your other users in a more restricted bandwidth proxy.  
I have several configurations out there that do exactly this.
Forgot to mention that you can also monitor live internet usage as well as automated logging for later review.
