Web server SSL Overhead

Hello All,

I'm building a very high volume web site which needs to be as lean and mean as possible.  The site will be sustained by advertising so it needs to be very efficient.  What kind of performance overhead is accepted by using SSL protection?  How much more server memory, CPU, and bandwidth will be consumed if I use SSL for each user's session?

(I'm using IIS7 configured as a web farm; via SQL Server state management)

SSL is unnecessary then for my site.  It just add unnecessary security for data that's just not that important.
