(I suspect the answer is 'no' but figured someone might know a trick that I don't).

Can I use a PIX 515e (8.04) as a non-caching web proxy?

To my knowledge, the Cisco PIX cannot act like a non-caching web proxy. However you could setup something like a Untangle application server between the PIX and your internal network in transparent bridged mode and it can handle web filtering as it catches all TCP sessions and processes them inline.

The only other options I can think of would be using Squid (www.squid-cache.org) or Nginx (www.nginx.net).

Definately not! sorry - you can mount a proxy behind it like ISA/Squid or AnalgX if your short of cash
