12 or 16 gigs to learn Vsphere

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Morning, I am currently running 4 gigs of desktop memory on this board

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157280

I am looking to host virtual machines on my desktop as well as on a small home server with windows server 2012. Ram has come down alot in price since I bought this 4 gigs, and I would like to upgrade.

The server is my lab partners and I currently dont know how much memory it has.

Any suggestions?

Ideally I would like to host 2-3 windows 7 machines on this box. Each with 3gigs of ram. The more the better though. Does anyone have experience with this?

Student here, so I will soak up any available information you guys can throw at me!!

since they are going to be virtual machines, i would suggest you get the 16 gigs. what you can do is get 12 and see if you are satisfied with that, if not grab the 16.
