Make sure you get the Raspberry Pi version 3. It is much more powerful than
previous ones, especially than the first.

Yes it is slower than a normal PC, but it could be enough for a relay,
depending on the speed of your internet connection. How fast it is? Roughly,
with a Pi you should be fine at least up to 20 Mbit or more (do you have 20
Mbit upload with your ISP?)

It will not negatively affect the network in any case.

It can be an OK idea, many people run those and have no issues.
