If it's business critical, it should be a cluster (at least 2 servers), redundant PSUs and (gigabyte) NICs, either big fast local disks or fibre attached SAN disks for logging and cache.  The more RAM the better.
It all depends on the operating system, and software you are using - presumably something like squid and more importantly how many users, how much bandwidth etc.  i.e. a normal desktop / laptop would do for a few users with light browsing
