from what i have experienced, as long as you have enough to run the client you should be fine. most smp clients would be fine on 512 (i think) i would run a gig to be safe, especially with vmware being memory hungry sometimes.
now where you get mixed results is speed vs. timings, some people report massive changes while others report little to none.
