nuff said. Besides that, you'll want the extra horsepower for the VMs. On that note, if you plan on running more than one VM 24/7, it's probably worth buying 16GB of RAM. It's still pretty cheap and you only really need 1600mhz.

For $40 more: Newegg.com - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10
