Honestly RAM is so cheap right now, if you are running VMs throw as much in as you can 32GB is not overkill for VM work. Even VM tasks like merging snapshots, hdd maintenance will eat up huge amounts of RAM if they can. and its roughly $100 right now for 32GB....

Also depending on VM sizes, you may want to look at an array of SSDs.... the first time I merged snapshots at 1500MB/s I almost cried. Still use a platter for backup, but live work on the SSDs.

And as other have mentioned get a black friday deal on a good power supply.
