PIX does not do any content filtering, nor does the ASA 5505.
Content filtering is only possible by adding the CSC card to an ASA 5510 or larger. If you do, you can do content filtering (Antivirus/Malware, keywords etc.). By adding the CSC Plus license, you also get the ability to filter based on website/URL categories, and do Spam filtering for mail transfer.
For IOS routers, there is limited Content Filtering available, but not to the extent and throughput as the CSC can.
As for the CSC performance, lacking official numbers from Cisco, please note that the CSC10 (in our experience) has not been close to keeping up with a 34M line ...

Well you can do some basic content filtering using regular expressions. Have a look at:http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/products_configuration_example09186a0080940c5a.shtml

Keep in mind though you can't filter https URL's, even with the CSC module.
