I would say move to 6.3R as its a better release with a lot of bug
fixes. In terms of your general performance issues, choice of
hardware really makes a difference as quality of drivers can be an
issue. You might have a really awesome controller that works well on
Windows or LINUX, but does not do so well under FreeBSD because there
isnt any good driver support for it.

Did you do a fresh install or did you try and migrate from RELENG_4
to RELENG_6 ? What network card are you using ? What are the errors
(CRC?). How about a dmesg from the box.
