What is the cheapest way to get more than 32gb memory? AMD? Intel?

I am running the following at the moment:

MSI Z77MA-G45 mATX mainboard with VT-d support
Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600Mhz (PC3 12800)
256GB crucial M4 SSD

I also have an i7-2600k and an AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition gathering some dust around here.

The more cores the merrier but its really the memory that I need most.

Any advice appreciated biggrin.gif

How is your memory usage on the host? Are you swapping and/or ballooning, if so how much? What is your ready time average for each of your VM's?
