route vs firewall

Experts,

We have a cisco 6500 and a pfsense firewall. What would be the gateway for the server and desktop computers? The design is to create a dmz for some servers and provide nat for the desktop computers

I believe the default gateway should be the router then the router should have it's default gateway set to pfsense?

The most common way of doing it is with separate VLAN/Subnets for the inside LAN or LANs  and the network between the 6500 and the firewall.
Then set the clients up with their default gateway as the local router for the LAN/VLAN they are connected to.
Then you have to add a default route in the router pointing to the firewall. You also need a route or routes to the internal networks added to the firewall with its next hop as the 6500.

yes, desktop =>router local interface ip => router => pfsense local ip
